Solange to debut new performance at the closing of the Venice Biennale

The visual artist and musician continues to evolve her use of sound and movement as an architectural language

Just one week after Solange performed Bridge-s at Los Angeles’ Getty Museum, she’s set to debut another performance piece, this time for the closing of the 58th International Art Exhibition of La Biennale di Venezia.

Continuing to use sound and movement as an architectural language, this Sunday 24 November at 3.45pm, the visual artist and musician will unveil a new musical performance piece which will explore “themes of protection, transformation and spiritual expedition”, and will include new musical compositions and performance works, as well as choreography from Bridge-s’ artists Gerard & Kelly. Just like she has done with previous performances, Solange is encouraging all attendees to dress in black.

“Over the last few years so much of my work has become about world-making, creating landscapes and universes that I wanted to see growing up and leaving them behind for girls and women who look like me to discover,” said Solange. “The purpose for me is to create sound and movement and scenography to develop my own architectural language and to invite the right spaces to coexist with the work.”

The performance is part of the closing weekend performance programme Meetings on Art, In order to attend Solange’s performance for the Meetings on Art programme, it is necessary to purchase an admission ticket to the 58th International Art Exhibition. The detailed programme can be found here
