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. Huxtable uses self-portraiture, text-based prints, performance, social media, and music as mediums through which to create identity within the context of history and contemporary world currents. Huxtable, who is transgender and whose adopted name is inspired by the family on The Cosby Show, constructs hybrid human-creature avatars as manifestations of her fluid gender and sexual identity, articulating each distinct self through portraiture and writing. Much of her work is centered on drawing connections between disparate ideas rather than arriving at concrete conclusions, a concept also found in her fast-paced performances, which echo the act of browsing the Internet and jumping from page to page.
