Phi invites you to the launch of the fourth edition of THEFINEPRINT, The Wealth Issue. We’re bringing into town New York DJ and artist Juliana Huxtable (NYC) for a LIVE DJ set!
Juliana Huxtable is an artist, poet, performer, and DJ who often uses her own body, gender fluidity, and identity as her primary subject. Spurred by a diaristic impulse, she reflects upon her gender transition and often links her own physical evolution to a dialogue concerning avatar, science-fiction, radical black and queer movements, and aboriginal tribes, among other social phenomena. Drawing on life experiences and inspired by Internet communities, Juliana Huxtable strives to create safe spaces, address anxieties, and cultivate a sense of inclusivity through her work. She originally found her way into the downtown New York club scene by founding #SHOCKVALUE, a weekly queer party, and subsequently performing at venues hosted by club culture icons Ladyfag and Frankie Sharp. Huxtable is “a key voice in New York’s art world, and a catalyst for other artists, writers and performers in the city,” says Stuart Comer, MoMA’s chief curator of media and performance art.
This event is in conjunction with the launch of THEFINEPRINT's fourth print issue, also happening at the Phi Centre the same night.
