Many know the late Malick Sidibé as the chronicler of Mali in the 1950s, 1960s and 1970s. His black and white photographs chronicled the lives and the youth culture, taking candid photographs of street life, nightclubs, sporting events and event formal portraiture.

It was an interesting time for Mali as it gained its independence and transformed from a French colony to an independent country looking toward the West.

Come view works by Sidibé, as well as the African-inspired Paint/Rag series by painter Leslie Wayne, April 28 through July 1.
