In 2013, we are delighted to announce that the project continues in Mali and the 'Money in Bamako and London' exhibition will be on display at le Patio at the French Institute from 2-21st December.

The topics in London – captured by Diane Patrice – address how money circulates, how it is used, saved, and spent in every day contexts around the city. In light of the coup d’état and political upheavals in Mali in 2012, our Bamako-based photographer artist – Harandane Dicko – exposed the effects of sanctions (imposed from 3-8 April 2012), economic insecurity and struggle in daily lives in Bamako (the images were taken during March/April 2012). In Dicko’s work, he counterbalances an image of children playing card games to illustrate the continuity of daily life.

in 2012 ...

In 2012, the exhibition 'Money in Bamako and London' went on display at the Clore Education Centre, The British Museum for one month, coinciding with the opening of the Citi Money Gallery. It also formed part of the London Festival of Photography (www.lfph.org), which celebrated a number of city-wide exhibitions and events.

in 2011...

In 2011, the thematic content of the exhibition documented and drew upon parallels between taxi drivers’ daily routines, families sharing meals together and friends’ conversations over cups of tea in Bamako and London, for example. The exhibition was hosted in London in May before travelling to Bamako last September. Participating artists were Diane Patrice in London and Alioune Bâ in Bamako and the project was curated by Sophie Mew in London.
