Bettina Hubby is a visual artist living and working in Los Angeles. Her work, which engages diverse communities and often exists in settings that challenge the conventions of exhibition spaces, celebrates collaboration and resists easy categorization. She earned her MFA in 1995 from the School of Visual Arts in New York, and moved to Los Angeles in 1999. She is represented by Klowden Mann. She was recently featured in Wallpaper Magazine as one of the top creative talents in Los Angeles and was included in Artforum’s “Best of 2014.” She has been featured on NPR (in 2012 and 2013) and in LA Weekly, New York Magazine, Huffington Post, The Los Angeles Times, and many others.
Jon Leaver is Associate Professor of Art History at the University of La Verne. His research focuses on nineteenth-century art and criticism as well as the contemporary art of Los Angeles.
