Solange Knowles, When I Get Home. 2019
Don’t miss an extended version of When I Get Home, an interdisciplinary performance art film by visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles.
The film was directed and edited by Solange Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Additional work courtesy of Houston artist Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and featuring new musical arrangements. The film also features new sculpture work by the artist, “Boundless Body” (2019), an 8 by 100 ft. rodeo arena displayed in the desert of Marfa, which sits alongside many architectural wonders in the film, such as the Rothko Chapel at the Menil Collection and the I. M. Pei designed Dallas City Hall.
When I Get Home is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition. The film confronts how much of us we have taken or left behind in our evolutions, and how much fear determines this. The artist returned to her home state of Texas to answer this through an expedition of a futurist rodeo uplifting the narrative of black cowboys and honoring her Houston lineage through this visual meditation.
The extended version of the film is screening exclusively from July 17, 2019 across partner institutions in USA and Europe. For full listings and screening information see Black Planet and We Present for further information.
Length: 41 Minutes
