The Museum of Fine Arts, Houston presents Solange Knowles: When I Get Home
Visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles presents an extended director’s cut featuring new scenes and musical arrangements of her interdisciplinary performance-art film, When I Get Home. The film premieres in museums and contemporary arts institutions across the United States and Europe beginning July 17 before closing as part of Chinati Weekend on October 13, 2019.
When I Get Home is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition. The film confronts how much of ourselves we have we taken or left behind in our evolutions, and how much of that is determined by fear. Solange returned to her home state of Texas to answer these questions through an expedition of a futurist rodeo, uplifting the narrative of black cowboys and honoring her Houston lineage through this visual meditation.
