A Jean Nouvel building featuring an amazing tree in the entrance. We were there for the Malick Sidibe photo exhibition. Very interesting and a brilliant documentary to highlight Sidibe's photos and home country. Buying tickets online allows you to skip the line.

This exhibition demonstrates how the automobile ("car") provided photographers with a new subject, new point of view and new way of exploring the world (text from press release). Over 100 photographers, from Robert Frank, Joël Meyerowitz, Lee Friedlander, to Theo Baart and Cary Markerink et...More
