Malick Sidibé: The Eye of Modern Mali

Free admission.
Malick Sidibé, probably Mali’s most famous photographer, rose to fame by producing his black and white captures of popular culture in Bamako, which is Mali’s largest city. Sidibé won many awards during his life, most noteworthy are the Hasselblad Award for photography and the Golden Lion Award for Lifetime Achievement at Venice Biennale. Malick Sidibé’s Bamako work from the 1950s to 1970s chronicles Mali’s transformation from a French colony to an independent state. For Sidibé photography was youth and joy as a result, his work captured candid images in the streets and nightclubs.
