Sidibé is known for his black-and-white images chronicling the lives and culture of the Malian capital, Bamako, in the wake of the country's independence.

The exhibition will present 45 original prints from the 1960s and 1970s around three defined themes: "Beside the Niger River", "Nightlife in Bamako" and "The Studio".

Sidibé was the first photographer, and first African artist, to receive a Gold Lion at the Venice Biennale in 2007. Other significant awards include The Hasselblad Foundation International Award in Photography in 2003, as well as the Infinity Award from International Center of Photography in 2008 and winning the Arts and Entertainments category at the World Press Photo competition in 2010.

Launching at 1:54 in October 2016, the exhibition will continue throughout the winter season in 2017.
