Sidibe (1936-) and Ojeikere (1930-2014) are West African black-and-white photographers, hailing from Mali and Nigeria, respectively. Sidibe is an established, beloved master; Ojeikere is finding worldwide audiences since his images of sculptural African hair were a hit at 2013's Venice Biennale. M.I.A. Gallery director Mariane Ibrahim-Lenhardt presents a thoughtful consideration of one of Sidibe’s favorite themes: looking at people from unexpected angles, with a special focus on women’s strong backs. A Sidibe show is a reason to come out in itself, but Ojeikere also has been shown very little on the West Coast, and possibly not at all in Seattle. (JEN GRAVES)
