Freeze Frame: The Podcast

I made "Freeze Frame" for an episode of Artspeak Radio Digest:Proximities that aired on Coop Radio 100.5 FM in June.
My plan is to make more episodes and eventually put the series on Apple Podcasts etc. !

For now listen to the first 2 episodes:

The Deed
By For'er Players

This teleplay was recorded with members of For’er Players over the past year. While we would love to screen it publicly some day soon (some plans were in place), we thought it would be fun to release it now to the small screen!

The story follows a man who suffers from amnesia but who also has a photographic memory. This leads him to experience distinct memories that he cannot place, and to feel both comfortable and ill-at-ease with the people around him. The story touches on love, betrayal, conspiracy, the environment, and inter-generational strife.

{At the first rehearsal we learned that Ashley was pregnant irl so that led to a major rewriting of the third act.}

The Deed was made collaboratively with Ashley Mccloud, Scott Lewis, John Burgess, Nikolai Gauer, Meg Hubert, and myself. Our previous play, The Chiropractor, can be found below if you scroll down to 2015. A skit from around the same time called “Allergic to Power” can be found here too.

Art Rock No. 31 FINALE at Robson Square

Bio for the upcoming doc about Art Rock? That explains JSN

JSN began in the summer of 2014 as “Johnny Steve, Steve Johnny”, a musical duo announced as a kind of battle between John Burgess on bass and Steve Hubert on keyboard and drum machine. Their mostly improvised approach was buttressed shortly after when Nikolai Gauer joined them on guitar. JSN’s first performance as JSN (Johnny Steve and Nik) took place a couple months later when the band played a magazine launch for Looking at Nothing-RT. 

JSN’s first album, Mirror of Your Life, was released in 2018 on Agony Klub after a number of appearances as the unofficial house band for Artrock at the Astoria.  Similar to these performances, the music for MOYL was prepared by getting together at Duplex on Wednesday nights and reviewing the day’s events over beers.  These stories were folded into lyrics, with the songs recorded on the same night in a single take. The resulting pop music has always been a surprise to JSN, since very little control is exerted by anyone. 

After 4 years JSN is largely the same as when it started out: a therapy session turned into music. They cull their inspiration from hanging out, listening to music in a Ford Festiva, and sitting on the porch sipping Rolling Rocks outside Duplex.  All members cite  a special relationship that keeps the project going, against all odds, towards a weekly catharsis with varying results.  

A digital album is available from AGONY KLUB at

Oil and oil stick on canvas

For this group exhibition I showed some paintings from the ongoing series Leaks by S. Hubert.

I got rid of the original Leaks painting in 2012, thinking I'd gone too far with trying to salvage it. For example, I'd added a thin canvas stretcher to the bottom and signage to the top to make it look "taller." However, a couple years ago I was still thinking about it and decided to try again.

"Leaks" is the name given to mirrors by Kilgore Trout in Breakfast of Champions. Also, the original Leaks painting appeared to have paint leaking
down to the bottom.





Feb. 10, 2017 Artspeak | Noise gives the listener duration as an artifact

Gabi Dao, Steve Hubert and DB Boyko
February 11 - March 18, 2017
Opening reception Friday February 10, 8 PM

The title of this show is borrowed from Lisa Robertson's prose essay 'Disquiet'. I find
myself returning to Robertson in her writings on how noise/sound can constitute a
distinct social fabric; how the convergence of the sonic, temporal, spatial is materialized
and tethered to place. In acknowledging and being attentive to understanding the ways
that we are part of the soundscape, as observers and producers, how is our being
simultaneous with it provide a means through which to translate the associations and
experiences sound carries? What are the possibilities of listening as a practice that can
inform our personal and political agency? In thinking about the systems through which
sound circulates, which are the voices that we hear and which are the voices that we do
not hear? Works by Vancouver-based artists Gabi Dao, Steve Hubert and DB Boyko
offer divergent approaches in their considerations of how the 'intangible' nature of sound
can be materialized. Their practices navigate the space between transmission of
information and reception, listening and response. How do we give and determine form
to what is not immediately visually discernable?

2016 Critic's Picks
Steffanie Ling wrote a lovely overview of my projects in the past year. Along with thoughts
on Strawberry (Dennis Ha and Barry Doupé ) and Jessie Birch's amazing work at the
Nanaimo Art Gallery.

This is what she wrote:

Steve Hubert is that friend of yours you go secondhand shopping with and everything he tries on looks maybe a bit weird, perhaps ill fitting, yet he always manages to pull it off without irony. Hubert’s openness to new ventures in the city afforded him opportunities to unfetter his curiosity and pursue a variety of things. In the past year, he produced two plays under the For’er Players Theatre Company (The Chiropractor and Allergic to Power), performed at performance cabaret RERUNS, wrote The Hieroglyph-Prone Society of Actors-in-Commercials (a short story for new literary art journal Young Adult), mounted a solo-exhibition at the recently established Duplex, and several others. Throughout these projects, he touched on the absurdities of subcultures, power dynamics as insecure structures, and a novel approach to artists’ theatre. I don't reckon the result to be mastery, but it’s rare to get a real sense of freed curiosity from many artworks, never mind that of several projects, by an individual artist and his respective collaborators. Executed at the risk of slipping into dilettantism, he emerged the earnest dabbler – in dapper thrift no less!

Thanks Steff!!!!

a song about Jason Day's recent big-time golfing win

He'd been trying at this for a while, and apparently felt like this could be his last shot.
I was moved by his emotional transparency.

Also, Jason Day, who isn't American, was being heckled by
Amercian fans of an American golfer. The game was in America.
They were saying "choke choke choke"!

Who doesn't imagine themselves as the character of a similar story?



Left right left right left right left
Hey guys
Why don't you just give it a break
Jason Day at Whistling Pines

Hey Guys
Why give him a rough time
Why give him a rough time

Hey Guys
Hey Guys
Give me a try:
Choke, choke, choke, choke.

Choke, choke, choke, choke.

Give him a break now!
Give him a break.
He ain't no flake
How much can one man take?
He has a beautiful family!
