You can use a table.

\setupexternalfigures[location=default]

\starttext

\bTABLE[frame=off,align=middle]
\bTR
\bTD \externalfigure[cow]   [height=5\lineheight] \eTD
\bTD \externalfigure[mill]  [height=5\lineheight] \eTD
\bTD \externalfigure[hacker][height=5\lineheight] \eTD
\eTR
\bTR
\bTD Figure 1\eTD
\bTD[nx=2] Figure 2 and 3 \eTD
\eTR
\eTABLE

\stoptext
