The exhibition presents 45 original prints from the 1960s and 1970s based around the themes of: Tiep à Bamako / Nightlife in Bamako, Au Fleuve Niger / Beside the Niger River, Le Studio / The Studio.

Our friends at Darkroom have curated an exclusive retail space to run alongside the much anticipated exhibition, inspired by Africa, Mali and Sidebé’s work.
