Film still of When I Get Home by Solange Knowles

Our evening will conclude with the exclusive screening of the interdisciplinary performance art film When I Get Home (2019) by visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles. Directed and edited by Solange Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori, with artist contributions that include Houston-based Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and sculptural work by "Boundless Body".  When I Get Home is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition while confronting how much of us we have taken or left behind in our evolutions, and the role of fear in this process. The artist returned to her home state of Texas to explore this theme via an expedition in a futurist rodeo, uplifting the narrative of black cowboys and honoring her Houston lineage through this visual meditation.​
