The BMA is honored to partner with Solange Knowles and debut in concert with select international institutions an extended director’s cut version of When I Get Home, featuring new scenes and musical arrangements. The interdisciplinary performance art film is the companion film to Knowles’ latest album and an exploration of origin and spiritual expedition. Through a futurist rodeo that lifts up the narrative of black cowboys and honors Knowles’ Houston lineage, the film confronts how much of us have we taken or left behind in our evolutions, and how much fear determines this. When I Get Home features Knowles’ new sculptural work Boundless Body—a rodeo arena displayed in the desert of Marfa, Texas, sitting alongside many architectural wonders, such as the Rothko Chapel at the Menil Collection and the I. M. Pei designed Dallas City Hall. 

The extended version of When I Get Home premieres across renowned museums and contemporary arts institutions across the U.S. and Europe from July 17 – October 13, 2019.
