Mariane Ibrahim Gallery’s ‘BACK STORIES’ Is a Welcome Reprieve From the Face, Seattle Weekly, March 8, 2017
"Co-curated by gallery owner Mariane Ibrahim Abdi and scholar and curator Negarra A. Kudumu, the work in BACK STORIES pulls from many traditions and histories and features artists from several continents, the majority of whom are now working in Africa. With the exception of Malick Sidibé, who passed away last April, all the artists are living. Most of the works are photographs, which also makes the show thoroughly contemporary, even youthful in its overall affect."
