    February 6, 2019 - 5:00pm

    The University of Michigan School of Social Work is pleased to present Juliana Huxtable live in performance at the Lydia Mendelssohn Theatre for the 2018 Martin Luther King Symposium. Huxtable is a NYC-based artist, DJ and poet whose work probes the perception and presentation of identity, history and online communities.  Her performance marks Michigan Social Work’s first commissioned artist in over 20 years, as a part of the Social Justice Art Collection.

    Huxtable will present a new iteration of her performance work highlighting her compelling use of language, and collaborations in music, projection, and lighting design.  Featuring instrumental performances by her frequent collaborators, the pianist, percussionist, and composer Joe Heffernan, Detroit-based harpist Ahya Simone with lighting design by Michael Potvin. Through Huxtable’s explorations, one may contemplate the power and powerlessness of the body as well as its dispossession in relation to technology, violence, and blackness.

    In conjunction with SW713 :  Art and Design for Social Work, Social Justice and Community Change Instructed by Professor Larry Gant.
