Juliana Huxtable was born in 1987 in Bryan-College Station, Texas. She lives and works in New York. Huxtable attended Bard College, New York, where she studied art, gender studies, and human rights.
Huxtable works with a diverse set of mediums, as self-portraiture, text-based prints, performance, nightlife, music, writing, and social media, the boundaries between the means are often fluid while never asserting one method over another. In her work she explores the intersections of race, gender, queerness, and identity. Huxtable critiques existing social norms and categorical distinctions while indicating alternate, more hopeful possibilities.
Huxtable’s work has been included in group presentations at MoMA PS1, New York (2014); White Columns, New York (2014); Whitney Museum of American Art, New York (2014); Frieze Projects, London (2014) and New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York (2015).
In 2018 Huxtable was awarded the USA Artist Grant.
Her work can be found in the collections of Solomon R. Guggenheim, New York and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York.
