KJ states: “I am (a) Harambee-Milwaukee home grown performance artist of avant-garde poetry. I started writing poetry in seventh grade thanks to mentors Kwabena Nixon and Muhibb Dyer.” Kavon’s performance venues range from colleges and universities to galleries, bars and more

Nikolai Olivieri states: “I first connected with Kavon through a Milwaukee Artist Resource Network (MARN) event, where he performed a moving and heartfelt piece. I have continued to connect with him via the arts and social media, and am delighted to work with him on this project. The Androgynous Humanoid challenged me to stretch my physical and creative boundaries, interpreting Kavon’s words and exploring the many areas of Milwaukee referenced in his work.”

Jeanne Nikolai Olivieri is a Milwaukee artist who works in watercolor, acrylics and mixed media. Her current body of work, Cabled Together, focuses on the frequently overlooked power lines, cables and wires that support us, divide our space and change our landscape. Sharp perspectives, vibrant colors and multiple viewpoints give the subject matter warmth and connect it to our lives. Her studio in the Third Ward’s Marshall Building displays her work and is open by appointment and from 5-9 p.m. the third Friday of every month.
