Amanié, What’s New? is a photography and video exhibition by Carlos de Jesus and Claude Oudey, curated by Lydie Diakhaté, that will be on display in the Kimmel Center Windows from September 7th – October 18th, 2017. The exhibition brings together compelling archival photo and film material shot 35 years ago in the fishing village of Aby in Ivory Coast, West Africa. The greeting “Amanié” (meaning “What’s new?” in Agni, the language spoken in Aby) can also include the sharing of nightly dreams.
