Jean-Pierre Morin




Jean-Pierre Morin (born 1951) is an artist whose artistic practice revolves around public art, with a particular focus on creating visually stunning and monumental artworks. With a strong emphasis on materiality and form, Morin's work aligns with installation art and engages with space and site.

Morin pursued sculpture studies in Saint-Jean-Port-Joli from 1968 to 1971. He earned a Bachelor of Fine Arts in 1978 from Université Laval and a Master of Fine Arts in sculpture from Concordia University in 1984. Over the years, he has exhibited his artwork extensively, with around twenty solo exhibitions and more than 80 group exhibitions in Quebec, Toronto, and the United States.

In 2003, the Musée Régional de Rimouski presented a major exhibition titled "De l'objet comme poétique esthétique: Jean-Pierre Morin," showcasing his artwork. In 2008, Morin received the Prix de la Fondation Monique et Robert Parizeau for his artwork "Trombe," which was installed at the Musée National des Beaux-arts du Québec. In 2016, his significant body of work was featured in a comprehensive survey exhibition at the art center 1700 La Poste. This exhibition was accompanied by a documentary and a definitive book documenting Morin's career and artistic achievements.
