presented “An Ode To,” an interdisciplinary performance inspired by her 2016 album at the Guggenheim Museum. Attendees, who arrived in all-white looks at the artist’s request, were treated to a multisensory piece that encompassed modern dance choreography, art installations, and a live set featuring songs from A Seat at the Table backed by a full horn ensemble.
As they descended down the museum’s spiraling walkway, Solange and her backup vocalists—dressed in coordinating earth-tone costumes—provided a splash of color amid the female dancers clad in long-sleeved white tops and leggings. The effect was striking, to say the least. And with a no-cellphone policy in effect, guests were fully immersed in the experience from start to finish.
