An Exhibition At Jack Shainman in New York Presents Previously Unseen Works by Malick Sidibé
In 2018, Malick Sidibé’s charismatic portraits are so well known as to be mainstream, but it’s always a pleasure to come upon them again—or for the first time. Taken in Bamako, Mali, where Sidibé was born and raised, in the 1960s and 70s, the portraits capture the youth and vitality of a population recently freed from French colonial rule.
Sidibé’s photographs are currently on view in “LOVE POWER PEACE,” an exhibition open at Jack Shainman Gallery at 524 West 24th Street in New York through August 10, 2018. Including previously unseen photographs, the exhibition captures the pride, openness, and beauty of the culture in which Sidibé was steeped.
