The exhibition "La vie en rose«presents a selection of circa 90 — mostly unpublished — photographs taken in Mali’s capital Bamako, in the 1960’s —1970’s period. Photographs fully unveiling the magic and excitement of life in Bamako in those years, when the desire of being part of history in its making seemed imperative; images which have made Sidibé world famous: the parties in the 1960’s, studio portraits and a selection of photographs from his archives, which tell us a long stretch of time in the history of Mali...
