Juliana Huxtable (b. 1987, Bryan-College Station, Texas) is an artist who works across genres of visual art, performance, music, and writing. Whether DJing a nightclub set, creating text-based prints, or making self-portraits, such as her 2015 works Untitled in the Rage (Nibiru Cataclysm) and Untitled (Psychosocial Stuntin’), she defiantly challenges normative ideas of gender, race, sexuality, and beauty. Her work is informed by her experiences as a Black, transgender, intersex, queer person raised in a Baptist home in Texas.
Huxtable has performed in and her work has been shown at Reena Spaulings Fine Art, New York; Project Native Informant, London; the New Museum, New York; the Museum of Modern Art, New York; the Guggenheim, New York; the Musée D’Art Moderne, Paris; and in Never Done: 100 Years of Women in Politics and Beyond at the Tang Teaching Museum. She is a member of the art collective House of Ladosha and a founder of Shock Value, a nightlife collective run by women artists. She is the recipient of a 2019 United States Artists Fellowship and a 2017 Louis Comfort Tiffany Foundation grant. Huxtable, a graduate of Bard College, lives and works in New York City.
