Five Photographers from Mali

October 25, 2017 - October 2018
Ground Floor Gallery

The West African country of Mali has long been home to a creative community of photographers, many based in urban studios. This exhibition explores five exemplary practitioners of the art of photography: Mamadou Cissé, Adama Kouyaté, Abdourahmane Sakaly, Malick Sidibé and Tijani Sitou-spanning the period from the 1940s to the 1990s. Their works document the region's transition from colonial French West Africa to the independent nation state of Mali, featuring portraits taken within and outside the studio, as well as cultural events and transcultural trends.
