The Fondation Cartier pays homage to Mali. The museum offers visitors to gaze at photographer Malick Sidibé’s work on the occasion of a retrospective running from October 20, 2017 to February 2018. An exhibition suggested in homage to the artist deceased a year earlier.
The retrospective displays a large range of vintage pictures and portraits the photographer had taken throughout his career and which had been found in his private archives. The idea is to show, through the artist’s look, this vitality sensed in Bamako’s youth in the 1960s. it’s also a way to discover the artist’s life through black and white pictures, his involvement in the cultural and social life in Bamako.
All in all, over 250 pictures are displayed, and some have never been shown to the public. The exhibition evolves around two steps: on the first hand, Bamako’s night showing young people dancing together on rock music or twist from the 60’s and on the other hand, portraits and their diversity, important in the artist’s life and he used to take in his studios.
