(Open until Tue 16 Feb 2016)

The event includes five photographs from Alexandra’s project “333 Saints: A Life of Scholarship in Timbuktu.”

A great review of the show can be read in The Guardian: http://www.theguardian.com/artanddesign/2015/oct/16/british-library-west-africa-word-symbol-song-exhibition

On Thursday, October 15th, Alexandra spoke about her Timbuktu work at SOAS, University of London. The event was well attended and included an excellent question and answer exchange (at least from the perspective of the presenter!)
