Artists Studio: Juliana Huxtable

“Juliana’s voice is integral in this time, because she truly is a beacon of hope. She exists at the crux of almost every type of intersectionality, but still thrives”
VICE

Juliana Huxtable straddles the worlds of art, fashion, and night life, exploring the intersections of race, gender, queerness, and sexuality through a fluid mix of media including self-portraiture, text-based prints, club music and parties, poetry, and social media. Throughout her practice, Huxtable combines and reinvents cultural histories, questioning the presentation and perception of identity in artworks that often reference her own body and history as she examines socio-political issues. The art icon and powerhouse DJ creates a new work combining video, sound, spoken word, and performance in her ongoing exploration of what it is to be human and the resistance to the caging of people within fixed selves, private bodies, and prescribed identities.


The Artists Studio is supported in part by public funds from the New York City Department of Cultural Affairs in partnership with the city council, by the New York State Council on the Arts with the support of Governor Andrew M. Cuomo and the New York State Legislature, and the National Endowment for the Arts.
