Kevin S Hubbard is a research based transdisciplinary visual artist, designer, writer, educator, and critical systems thinker. He is a graduate of Rhode Island School of Design in Digital + Media: Art, Technology, and Emergent Practices and Emily Carr University of Art + Design with further studies at Brown University (Contemplative Studies) the Cooper Union for the Advancement of Science and Art (Fine Art & Critical and Cultural Theory), and Vancouver Film School (Digital Design). His visual and material investigations manifest themselves as contradictory, overlapping, multidisciplinary explorations that refuse rhetorical resolution other than presenting further complexity. Arguing for rigorous self-scrutiny, his work hints at acceptance, surrender, and eventual forgiveness – for self and other, across time, space, and difference. He has taught at RISD, worked as a kids and teens educational assistant at the RISD Museum, exhibited at 304 Days Gallery, the Firehall Arts Centre, and conceived and coordinated the artist/curatorial project MERKINtile at the 221A Artist Run Centre in Vancouver, BC. He is a 2020 Maharam STEAM Fellow, past recipient of the (President) Rosanne Somerson Scholarship (RISD), the Governor General’s Silver Medal (ECUAD), A BC Arts Council Achievement Award, the Helen Pitt Award, and the Alvin Balkind Memorial Scholarship. Blurring the boundaries between life and artistic practice, he co-managed a meditation centre where Vipassana meditation is practiced which is a technique that promises to eradicate suffering through a process of self-purification by self-observation. Its aims are the highest spiritual goals of total liberation and full enlightenment. He currently lives and works in Boston, MA.
