When she was appointed as the newest director of London's Tate Modern earlier this year, Frances Morris directly addressed the art world's gender imbalance. "Women will be very strongly present," she said of her plans for the museum in January, in order "to show the real history of art and the contribution made by women who have been overlooked." One of the first female powerhouses to take over the space is none other than Solange Knowles, who has just teased a dance performance she's curating in collaboration with the museum. "Creating and Composing something special for the new @TATE Museum with @alandelrio @carlota_guerrero and these beautiful babes who made my entire life," she wrote on Instagram yesterday, tagging video artist Alan Del Rio and photographer Carlota Guerrero. 

Solange seems to be involved in all facets of the performance, following up the clips of her baby blue-clad dancers with one of herself gracefully working it in a bunch of plastic dry cleaning bags. Of course, on her, they look like fresh-off-the-runway couture. Get a glimpse of the mysterious, extremely stylish project below.
