When Solange Knowles released her album, A Seat at the Table, she created her own platform to explore more forms of art. During her concerts, like many performers, she included a group of dancers. Unbeknownst to the public her performances were a form of visual art. these performances seem to have birthed the 2018 art exhibit Metatronia (Metatronia's Cube) Like her performances that typically accompany her song, "Weary", she and a group of performers dance harmonious in one or two colors, whether it be all white, black, red, etc.
Her art exhibit premiered at Hammer Museum (UCLA) in April of this year and is available to view online. Solange describes the exhibit as: "building frequency and creating charge through visual storytelling." It included pieces of simple, visually pleasing architecture and color blocking.
The fashion industry took notice in her visual art, including her in multiple magazines like Billboard, Glamour, Cultured, and Dazed. Most of the photos honor her nostalgic and edgy style. She was recently honored for her "commitment to supporting future generations of designers" by Parsons School of Design at the 70th Parsons Benefit.
There has not been any recent news on what Solange is planning to do musically, but she is certainly leaving her mark in the fashion and art industry.
