About Got to Go
Part memoir and part fiction, Got To Go presents a collection of photographs from across Rosalind Fox Solomon’s life, contrasting a narrative of her own early years with other, urgent images that reveal a wider vision of the world, one outside of the rigid boundaries imposed by society and the home. If biography is a net cast upon us by family and shaped by social codes, Fox Solomon lays bare the limits of the net, as she negotiates the cusp between lived life and her imagination. Describing the work as a “tragicomedy”, full of both humour and pathos, Fox Solomon probes the limits we impose on ourselves, not only social codes but also the inherited tenets which are so difficult to escape.
Rosalind Fox Solomon (b. 1930), an American artist based in New York City. She is celebrated for her portraits and for her connection to human suffering, ritual, survival, and struggle. Fox Solomon’s work flows back and forth between the personal and the universal. Her talent lies in her capacity to interpret and photograph both the social elements of the places she travels to, and the obsessions and anxieties that travel with her.
