KEVIN BEAULIEU

I was born and raised in the most dangerous neighborhood in Montreal. It was in the midst of both foster care and street gangs that I first had to make my place as a “real man”. The notions of masculinity, rebellion and power, which are critical aspects of this culture, have become central questions of my practice today.

In 2015, I earned a Master of Fine Arts at Concordia University in sculpture. I also hold a Bachelor of Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal (UQAM). In 2013, I participated in an exhibition organised by This Red Door at the Galapagos Art Space in New York (USA). In Quebec, I participated in exhibitions at the UQAM Gallery (2011 and 2012), Art Mûr (2013) Atelier Jean Brillant (2014), Maison de la culture Maisonneuve (2014) and Guido Molinari Fondation (2014). In the last few years, I have been invited to do artist residencies in Canada and Mexico like at AXART Gallery (Canada), Le Grave (Canada), Museum Capilla del Arte of the Universidad de las Americas (Mexico) and at Centro Morelense de las Artes (Mexico).
