Commissaires / Curators : Bisi Silva & Yves Chatap

With the Studio Mali project, the curators invite
photography studios from different neighbour-
hoods of Bamako to publicly display images from
their archives. By presenting these images in the
very neighbourhoods of the studios that produced
them, the project aims to reframe the presentation
of community archives. This project positions the
biennale as a mediator between photography studios
as they existed in the past and as they are in the present,
offering opportunities for the public to reflect on civic role
of studio photography in Malian culture.
