RENÉ DEROUIN
Born in 1936 in Montréal. Lives and works in Val-David in the Laurentians, QC.
For over forty years, the explorations of this multidisciplinary artist have taken him on
successive journeys in which he has probed the continental identity of the Americas, from
North to South. As far back as 1955, he became interested in pre-Columbian cultures and
began to learn about Mexican mural art. He has also pursued his investigations in the Far
North of Québec. In seeking his roots, he has delved into the notion of being “American,”
digging deep into cultural and territorial memories, as well as questions of migration and
the mixing of cultures, past and present. The result is an exemplary, highly current artistic
practice, itself culturally mixed and baroque, which ranges from printmaking and
drawing to sculpture and installation.
In addition to Derouin’s countless exhibitions in Québec, across Canada and in Mexico,
his remarkable works have been shown in France, the Unites States, Venezuela, Australia
and Japan.
His works may be found in many national and international collections¾testimony to the
excellence of his art. They include the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec,
Montreal Museum of Fine Arts, Musée de la civilisation du Québec, Bibliothèque du
Québec, Bibliothèque nationale de France, National Gallery of Canada, Glenbow
Museum in Calgary, Museo Tamayo de Arte Contemporáneo Internacional and Museo
Universitario del Chopo, both in Mexico City, Loto-Québec, National Bank and
numerous private collections.
The many prestigious awards he has won both in Québec and beyond its borders (Mexico
and Assemblée parlementaire de la francophonie) clearly demonstrate his outstanding
contribution and the fundamental role he has played in the world of arts and culture in
Québec, across Canada and throughout the Americas, most especially in Mexico.
