[OBS: Due to illness we unfortunately had to cancel tonight’s Artist Talk with Artist Marika Seidler.
The screening of Solange Knowles’ When I Get Home still begins as scheduled at 17:00. We look forward to seeing you for an evening full of music, movies and art!]
Join us for a second round of CC Selects at Copenhagen Contemporary.
All evening you can experience the interdisciplinary art film When I Get Home (2019) in an extended ‘directors cut’ by the American visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles.
CC Selects #2 also offers an artist talk by Marika Seidler presented by CC Studio and Live Art Denmark, DJ set by Louisa Nieves and Nina Holmgren as well as a concert with the Danish r’n’b singer Kaaliyah.
CC Selects is a series of evenings where CC has carefully curated an interesting program of art, music, and much more.
Solange Knowles presents an extended directors cut featuring new scenes and musical arrangements of her interdisciplinary performance art film When I Get Home..
When I Get Home (2019) is an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition. The film confronts how much of us have we 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 film was directed and edited by Solange Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Additional art courtesy of Houston artists Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and collage work by Gio Escobar of Standing on The Corner. The film also features new sculptural 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.
