In the finale of Huffman's "_____________" MEANS "I LOVE YOU" IN ITALICS, a multi-venue evolving project presented as part of the Art on the Move series of art in public spaces, the two artists will present work connected to a recent performance and accompanying music video they recently performed at the inaugural Freize LA.
This new performance will utilize the same promotional video installed on advertising trucks that Huffman used in December during Art Week Miami in the Design District, Wynwood and on Miami Beach, along with other tropes of hip-hop music videos. The performance will begin in the streets around Locust Projects (with live video/sound being projected in the project space at Locust) and conclude in the project space/parking lot, with the truck itself serving as a now-stationary light source for the performance and screen projecting video that corresponds with projections already occurring, temporarily at the space.
Thematically, this work continues Huffman's ongoing delving into Black ego, mental health, reconciling being a feminist with listening to certain contemporary hip-hop, police brutality, and representation.
