In Progress: AJ McClenon


AJ McClenon uses performance practices, sound, video, movement, theater, and writing to share experiences of living in a Black body. Originally from Washington DC, and currently based out of Chicago, McClenon holds an MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago and received a BA with a minor in creative writing from the University of Maryland, College Park. McClenon studied at the New School and has performed and exhibited at venues internationally including Dance to Save Lives in Jacmel, Haiti, LA Film Forum, and the National Museum of African American History and Culture. McClenon is interested in leveling hierarchies of truth, and hopes that all the memories and histories that are said to have “too many Black people” are told and retold again.
