Tia-Simone Gardner is an artist, educator, and Black feminist scholar from Fairfield, Alabama. Working primarily with photography, moving-image, and drawing, her practice is deeply grounded in interdisciplinary strategies that activate ideas of ritual, iconoclasm, and geography. Gardner holds an MFA in Interdisciplinary Practices and Time-Based Media from the University of Pennsylvania and Ph. D. in Feminist Studies from the University of Minnesota. She is currently working on a photographic/writing project with her mother that juxtapose questions of biopolitics, Black Southern familial memory and geology with vignettes of extractive capitalism.
