MuhfuckaNeva(Luvd)Uhs: Real Live Girl
11:00PM - - -
Price:  proceeds for Ladyfest Atlanta
MuhfuckaNeva(Luvd)Uhs: Real Live Girl is a multimedia street exhibition seeking to make the private public via exploring the sexual performance of the black woman’s body (film, live, music, dance). Among Atlanta’s popular monikers is “Strip Club Capital of the South”, particularly within hiphop culture. Black strip clubs in Atlanta, like its black women dancers, are located in the city’s margins, literally- tucked into dark, industrial corners with colorful, neon lit signs as proverbial brick roads to the dancers.

Danielle Deadwyler (actor/artist) is an Atlanta native raised off of the old Stewart Avenue, where the infamous Club Nikki, and before that the Purple Onion, reigned as the most popular adult entertainment spot for years. As an ongoing strip club enthusiast/researcher, Deadwyler is interested in deconstructing the dark, private nature of adult dancers’ sexual performances and the humanity of black women in these roles. By eliminating the structural boundary of the club, six live and projected (video) performances by the artist as an exotic dancer (live) and as domestic (filmed) in selected Atlanta street corners parallels and blurs the lines of the sexual and personhood of the black woman and the work of her body.
