Tiona McClodden speaking with Artblog at Moore Galleries’ Radio Booth

2016 Pew Fellow, Tiona McClodden makes documentary films and videos and sculptural environments. She’s made music videos and her work is political, exploring gender, race and under-known history. In our talk she tells me about selecting Philadelphia as a place with an excellent vibe and a community of black working artists, something very important to her. And, she is looking to start a gallery! The interview was recorded live at the Galleries at Moore’s radio booth on July 7, 2016.
