Tusker sponsors African exhibition

05 February, 2008

African lager brand, Tusker is to sponsor an exhibition of photographs by Mirella Ricciardi.

The exhibition, which opens at the Michael Hoppen gallery in London on Feb 21, shows images from Ricciardi’s 1971 book, Vanishing Africa.

The East African beer was seen as the ideal partner to the exhibition which features some of the last photographs of traditional African tribes.

Peter Karsten, marketing director for Tusker in the UK said: “It is great that Tusker can be involved with such a dazzling exhibition. Although Africa has changed so much one thing still remains the same and that is Tusker is a true African original."

The exhibition runs until April 5.
