Derouin, René

Born in 1936, in the East of Montreal, René Derouin lives in Val-David, in the Laurentians. His frequent visits of research led him to Mexico and Japan, where he perfected his art.

René Derouin sounds out our cultural and genetic memories in producing large installations, which have been seen in many museums in Canada, in the United States, in Mexico, in Venezuela, in Australia and in Japan. He had over 300 solo exhibitions and participated in numerous group exhibitions.

In 1998, a retrospective entitled Frontiers, Frontières, Fronteras was presented at the Glenbow Museum in Calgary. This exhibition was presented the following year at the Musée des beaux-arts de Montréal.

René Derouin received in 1999 the Québec Paul-Émile-Borduas Award for the body of his work.
