ICA Miami and visual artist and singer/songwriter Solange Knowles present an extended directors cut featuring new scenes and musical arrangements of her interdisciplinary performance art film “When I Get Home.” This film will be screened in conjunction with First Fridays at ICA Miami.

The film was directed and edited by Solange Knowles with contributing directors Alan Ferguson, Terence Nance, Jacolby Satterwhite, and Ray Tintori. Additional art courtesy of Houston artists Autumn Knight and Robert Pruitt and collage work by Gio Escobar of Standing on The Corner. The film also features new sculptural work by the artist, Boundless Body (2019), an 8 x 100 ft. rodeo arena displayed in the desert of Marfa, which sits alongside many architectural wonders in the film, such as the Rothko Chapel at the Menil Collection and the I. M. Pei designed Dallas City Hall.

The extended version of the film is screened exclusively from July 17, 2019 across partner institutions in USA and Europe. For full screenings information see BlackPlanet and download a digital When I Get Home Film Poster from WeTransfer.

First Fridays at ICA Miami are part of a neighborhood-wide initiative celebrating art and performance in the Miami Design District. Every first Friday, ICA Miami will remain open until 10pm, and offer experiences for visitors of all ages—film screenings, exhibition tours, performances, and more! Museum guests are encouraged to explore various after-hours activations throughout the Miami Design District, including world-class public art installations by Sol LeWitt, Yona Friedman, Urs Fischer, and Buckminster Fuller, among others. First Fridays at ICA Miami are free and open to the public, and are presented by the museum’s Innovation Partner, MINI USA.
