Alex Hubbard’s Death Never Sleeps featured new videos and paintings that built off the artist’s exploration of the fine line between “order” and “chaos.” Neither his videos nor his paintings took on a discernible form. The videos were shot in Oregon, Hubbard’s home state, from nondescript and nonspecific locations such as hotel rooms and trailers. The paintings were layered with various materials, including fiberglass, sheets, resin, and silkscreen, as counterpoints to the film. This exhibition was curated by Matthew Lyons.
