"Bridge-s" will take place on November 16 and 17 at the Getty Center Museum in Los Angeles.
For the two-day event, Solange Knowles has curated a series of performances, film screenings and artist talks that explore the theme of "transitions through time."
Among them are screenings of "Mother Tongue, Mother Master, 2018" by Phoebe Collings-James, "Wild Seed" by Samuel Hindolo, "Diary of an African Nun and Four Women" by Julie Dash, "Black to Techno" by Jenn Nkiru, as well as "AFRONAUTS and Boneshaker" by Nuotama Bodomo.
As part of "Bridge-s," Tribeca Film Festival award-winner Phillip Youmans will also unveil his latest short film, "Nairobi," which was made in collaboration with Knowles' Saint Heron creative agency.
Programming also includes the world premiere of a new work by American artistic duo Gerard & Kelly, which was choreographed specifically for the architecture of the Getty Center Museum.
The piece, based on their "Modern Living" series of site-specific performances, will be directed in collaboration with Knowles, with whom Gerard & Kelly worked on her 2018 interdisciplinary video "Metatronia."
"'Bridge-s' is a reflection on how much transition can be controlled and accelerated by our own ideas, thoughts, and movements vs. the natural process of time and space. The works chosen to respond to these ideas are dear to me, and by artists, musicians, philosophers and filmmakers I have an immense amount of respect for," Knowles explained in a statement.
For the occasion, the singer-songwriter has also composed an original musical score, entitled "Bridge-s," in collaboration with New York-based jazz multi-instrumentalist and composer Cooper-Moore.
In recent years, the "When I Get Home" vocalist has been expansively developing projects as a visual artist. She has notably conducted performance art shows across the globe, including at the Guggenheim Museum in New York City, the Chinati Foundation in Marfa, Texas, and the Elbphilharmonie in Hamburg, Germany.
Earlier this year, she also premiered an extended director's cut of her interdisciplinary arts film, "When I Get Home," across museums and contemporary institutions such as the Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA), New York's The Brooklyn Museum and London's V&A.
"Bridge-s" will be on view from November 16 through 17 at the Los Angeles museum, with all performances and film screenings free of charge.
