Bamako & London @ October Gallery

Images from Bamako & London (Alioune Bâ and Diane Patrice)

Described as a ‘collaborative exhibition of exchanges’, Bamako & London is that rare thing: a show of contemporary art from Africa which will be on view on the continent, as well off it. A partnership between two photographers, Diane Patrice (London, UK) and Alioune Bâ (Bamako, Mali), the exhibition features twenty portraits of everyday life, accompanied by projections of CCTV-style footage from both cities. It’s on for just a week at the October Gallery from this Tuesday, and will travel to the Musée de Bamako in Mali at the end of September 2011.

And a quick reminder: Nnenna Okore’s wonderful sculptures are also currently on show in the main space at the OG, so don’t forget to check them out too.

Show: 17th-25th May

Opening hours:
12.30-5.30
