LOS ANGELES - Thousands of visitors flocked to the Getty Center Saturday, November 16th & Sunday, 17th for the premiere of Bridge-s, a free series of performances, films and philosopher’s talk, programmed by GRAMMY-Award winning musician and visual artist Solange Knowles. 


The performance included new work by Gerard & Kelly, choreographed specifically for the architecture of the Getty Center Museum and based on their Modern Living series of performances, with an original musical score by Solange featuring Cooper-Moore.

The two-day event also included screenings of films by Julie Dash, Jenn Nkiru, Nuotama Bodomo, and Standing on the Corner, along with a special Saint Heron film premiere by Tribeca Film Festival award-winner Phillip Youmans, and a lecture by British-Ghanaian philosopher Kodwo Eshun.


The free weekend program explored the theme of “transitions through time,” and was presented by Dropbox and Getty in partnership with IAMSOUND.
