Maloney fine Art opens exhibition of works by Malick Sidibé

Maloney Fine Art presents Malick Sidibé: Studio Malick, Bamako, Mali, the photographer’s second solo exhibition with the gallery, in collaboration with Jack Shainman Gallery, New York. Featuring vintage prints in original hand-painted glass frames, the exhibition celebrates more than forty years of Malick Sidibé’s photographs of the lives of young people in Mali since the country’s independence from France in 1960.
