Bettina Hubby displays a raucous sense of humor in her second solo show aptly titled “The Sexual Bronze Show” at Klowden Mann. Mining a territory that expounds on the sexual pun, Hubby identifies objects from the grocery store that in some way compliment one another or more specifically suggest a sexual allusion. Thus yellow latex gloves cast in bronze stand on a pedestal alongside a package of sausages. The relationship may or may not appear obvious, but the impulse ... (read more)

Already familiar with collage, drawing, printmaking and sculpture, this time, she explores installation and photography.

As hinted by its title, the Sexual Bronze Show mingles sexuality and bronze. For the realization of the exhibition Hubby worked with common, market items. Yet their first purpose is diverted. A traditional washing sponge ... (read more)

It’s already heartbreaking enough to be diagnosed with Stage 1 breast cancer as Los Angeles-based artist Bettina Hubby was last January. But Hubby found that the toughest thing was the dour reactions of her friends, all of whom treated Hubby’s recovery with kid gloves or, worse, pity. To break the ice, the fun-loving Hubby started a Facebook page dedicated to bosom humor.

Soon, submissions to the page started flowing in, and Hubby saw a unique opportunity to turn something that often prompted ... (read more)

So I thought, Okay, I need to do this differently.”

Last fall, Klowden-Mann Gallery inaugurated its new Culver City, California space—having moved from Santa Monica and changed its name from ‘gallery km’—with an exhibition by Los Angeles-based artist Bettina Hubby. The gallery pays particular attention to the city’s native artists, so featuring Hubby was a natural entrance; and this week, they’ll show the L.A. darling at the Dallas Art Fair. From a series titled “before sex,” the gallery presents 15 of Hubby’s small prints—photographs on silk—featuring ... (read more)

Mahvash Mossaed reviews Bettina Hubby’s Pretty Limber 10.1.13









I say art is like God and artists are all like prophets who come into this world with a mission to spread the word – to spread the word with any language they can master, where the language could differ but the message is always the same.
There are not too many artists who dare to work with fabric or similar materials as such because it is a really difficult element and medium to use when creating ... (read more)

Sharon Mizota reviews Bettina Hubby’s Pretty Limber on the LA Times 9.26.13

Strange, hybrid creatures populate Bettina Hubby’s first solo gallery exhibition at Klowden Mann.
Pasted directly on the wall or floating just in front of it, the larger-than-life vinyl cutouts are uncanny amalgams of fashion and advertising imagery. Both familiar and disorienting, they mine the psychosexual undercurrents of everyday visual culture to create uncanny monsters.
A slinky dress — most of Hubby’s figures are faceless or headless — extends an arm that ends in a boxing glove. A headless man grips the legs of another ... (read more)

Andrew Berardini reviews Bettina Hubby’s Pretty Limber 9.12.13

Autumnal heatwaves in Los Angeles never fail to diminish the refreshing thrust of new energy breezing from art spaces around the city. Summer wilts galleries into group shows and makes museums ever welcome air-conditioned hideouts for long-installs. But the fall, hardly ever cool in September, still brings in new skin for the old ceremony, fresh air before the mildish winter chills, not only in premiering first shows from new artists but also in bringing veterans to the city who rarely exhibit here and unearthing ...

Rose Apodaca reviews Bettina Hubby’s Dig the Dig 9.4.13

What do a mirrored disco ball, a dirt-caked bulldozer and half a dozen pasta salads have in common? In the creative feasts that are inevitably an apogee to the multidimensional explorations of Bettina Hubby, they are facets of not only the human condition, but the interactions, including clashes, that result from community.
The ball, bulldozer and buckwheat noodles were served up along with construction site photography, a fragrance called “Dirt,” crochet traffic cone cozies and other activities by the good-humored art provocateur Sunday night ... (read more)

Shana Nys Dambrot reviews Bettina Hubby’s Dig the Dig on LA Weekly 7.18.13

If you've been to Bergamot Station Arts Center in the past few months, you may have noticed the giant hole where Track 16 used to be. But you also may have noticed something special with this particular construction site -- the augmentation of the dirt movers and nylon fences with a series of artist visits. Orange safety cones were transformed into flower stands, photographic banners were hung, and there was even the occasional mirrored disco ball. All that is the handiwork of artist and ...
