Singer and style icon Solange Knowles is well known for her artistic flair, hence it’s no surprise hers was one of a few that Tate Modern called upon, to create art for the reopening of its building this past weekend.
While we at SPICE have been thinking about ‘Movement’ this month, so’s Solange, with the star making a short video for the unveiling of the newly refurbished London building, which sees her signature whimsy take over a group of girls.
Sharing a couple of clips of to her social media pages, Solange’s all-girl clan are seen clad in baby blue and rocking natural and voluminous hair (style signatures of Solo, if ever we’ve seen them) as they dance about the new Tate, spilling from a cage in one clip, then pouring up some stairs in another.
The museum reopened on June 17th 2016, with Knowles being one of a number of artists involved in the event, creating art inspired by the refurbishment.
Sadly, the video – shot by Alan Del Rio Ortiz and co-art directed by Carlota Guerrero – isn’t available to view inside the Tate, but from these clips we get all the star’s feels and confirmation that enlisting Solange Knowles to create a video for the Tate was a very, very good idea.
