Solange Debuts Bridge-s


On Saturday, November 16th & Sunday, 17th, a series of performances, films, and artist talks entitled “Bridge-s,” programmed and curated by GRAMMY-Award winning musician and visual artist Solange Knowles, will premiere at Los Angeles’ Getty Center Museum.

The work will be directed in collaboration with Solange, who also composed an original musical score, “Bridge-s,” featuring Cooper-Moore for the event. The performance piece will be brought to life over the course of two days from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. each day across the Getty Center site.

The two day event will also include 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, AFRONAUTS and Boneshaker by Nuotama Bodomo, The State of Things by Kish Robinson, and more along with a special Saint Heron film premiere of NAIROBI by Tribeca Film Festival award winner Phillip Youmans.Programming will also include an artist talk with British-Ghanaian philosopher, Kodwo Eshun.
