My friend Tony Lowe and I are throwing this on Friday. Come through!!
Updated my site with photos from my solo show ‘Punitive Embers’ at The Luminary in St. Louis, MO, as well as pics from ‘Demo’, the three person show I’m in at Signal in Brooklyn, NY, with Andrew Laumann and Nicholas Gottlund.
A nice review on Joaquin Segura and I’s inaugural exhibition at Otras Obras in 2012.
Andrew Laumann, Jesse Hlebo, Nicholas Gottlund
May 9th - June 8th, 2014
Friday, May 9th
Signal is proud to present Demo, an exhibition of new and site-specific works by Andrew Laumann, Jesse Hlebo, and Nicholas Gottlund.
Working through similar vocabularies of heavily processed industrial and architectural materials, the artists explore opportunities for the reassertion of human agency that emerge from the breakdown of systems, on scales ranging from manufacture error to global social collapse.

Winter’s pretty much almost gone
'Punitive Embers' a solo exhibition of my work at The Luminary
When a vacationing Afghani Jihadi, a first generation Mexican-American border patrol officer, and a stoned, 12 year old, native New Yorker simultaneously update their Facebook status to “Why is Wikipedia blacked out?” on the same make of cell phone over free Starbucks WiFi, you know the apocalypse is already here.
Jesse Hlebo’s solo exhibition, Punitive Embers, is an experiment in crisis participation and civil suicide. How are we supposed to learn about the apocalypse when the internet is down?
