Juliana Huxtable

2019 YBCA 100 Honoree

Juliana Huxtable is an artist, poet, performer, and DJ who uses her own body, gender fluidity, and identity as her primary subject. She reflects upon her gender transition, often linking her own physical evolution to a dialogue concerning avatars, science-fiction, radical black and queer movements, and aboriginal tribes, among other social phenomena. She has performed at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York, and the Museum of Contemporary Art, Los Angeles, among other venues.
