Dreaming of Kin features Be Alarmed: The Black Americana Epic, Movement I – The Visions. The first of a four-part body of work by visual artist and filmmaker Tiona McClodden, this project charts the artist’s personal, familial, and spiritual biography. McClodden deconstructs the epic film genre through nonlinear film trailers, scenes, photographic ephemera, and sculptural objects that envelop the viewer in a constellation of coded heirlooms that reimagine the Black american family tale.
