The art gallery Tate Modern features a piece created by Solange Knowles front and center on its website.

The piece, which is titled 'Seventy States,' was inspired by the work of the artist Betye Saar "and the role she played in the Black arts movement in the 1970s." The piece was created as a response to Tate Modern's exhibition 'Soul of a Nation: Art in the Age of Black Power.' The interactive online creative work aims to make a statement about Black identity – specifically Black womanhood.

With her most recent album A Seat at the Table being about racial struggle in America, Knowles was an excellent choice for expanding on the museum's exhibition with personal expressions of her identity and life's work.
