Poetry. What happens when a young gun, awash in the uppermost detritus, thinks they can speak out loud, and in tongues? Multimedia artist Jibade-Khalil Huffman's second collection of deceptively flippant poems is a jam of ventriloquy, frequencies, and the plainest vernacular of our day: low-brow entertainment and high aspirations for seeing and knowing.
Jibade-Khalil Huffman (Detroit, 1981) is the author of 19 Names For Our Band and James Brown is Dead. A graduate of Bard College, Brown University, and the University of Southern California, his work will be included in the 2014 Hammer Museum biennial.Author City: NEW YORK, NY USA
