Construction and art materials, urban detritus, domestic items, and even the occasional animal make their way into New York-based artist Alex Hubbard’s dynamic videos. Avoiding a single point of focus, he constructs his videos in layers, creating all-over compositions in which movement is multi-directional and time seems non-linear. Also a painter, his videos and paintings are constructed through parallel strategies, both exploring the construction, composition, mass, color, and depth of images in unexpected ways. Hubbard’s elaborate Foley soundtracks add a delightful and provocative dimension to his adventurous visual narratives that challenge notions of duration and question the difference between looking and watching. Hammer Projects: Alex Hubbard will mark the debut of his newest video, Eat Your Friends (2011). Presented alongside The Border, The Ship (2010), the exhibition will highlight Hubbard’s increasingly complex videos that engulf viewers with bold colors, performative gestures, and evolving compositions. Organized by Hammer curatorial associate Corrina Peipon, Hammer Projects: Alex Hubbard is his first one-person museum exhibition.
