Malick Sidibé The Eye of Modern Mali

Somerset House in London is once again giving us a glimpse intoto a bygone era; this time of African youth culture through the lens of Malian photography Malick Sidibé.

Malick Sidibé: The Eye of Modern Mali, is the late photographer's first major solo exhibition in the United Kingdom, showcasing 45 original prints from the 1960's and 1970's and is curated by André Magnin and Philippe Boutté around three themes: Au Fleuve Niger (Beside the Niger River), Tiep à Bamako (Nightlife in Bamako), and Le Studio (The Studio).

Sidibé's black and white photographs document Malian culture and life in the country's capital, Bamako, in the wake of independence; one which coincided with the arrival of rockn'roll, edgy fashions, and a rebirth of youthful energy and exuberance. Sidibé's work does not only capture a country at the pinnacle of independence, but a joie de vivre-a joy of life- expressed during this era of social, cultural and political change.

"Music freed us" – Malick Sidibé

Under the curatorial guidance of DJ and African Music expert Rita Ray, the exhibition is accompanied by eclectic music and urban sounds to recreate the soul and energy of Malian nightclubs and Sidibé's studio, which was described as a party itself.
