Jean-François Bouchard has worked in contemporary visual art since 2003, traveling the world seeking out people whose interests and lifestyles are out of the ordinary. His visual focus is generally on marginalized, misunderstood, and often ostracized groups in our Western society. He sees his role as not only that of an activist but also of a witness who communicates the humanity he sees in his subjects. His work has been exhibited in galleries, museums, and festivals in Canada, the United States, and France. Transpose is Bouchard’s latest body of work which was exhibited at Arsenal Contemporary Art in Montreal and Toronto in 2015. His upcoming project “In Guns We Trust” will be featured in a book to be published by The Magenta Foundation and an exhibition to be presented at Arsenal Contemporary in New York City.
Bouchard lives and works in Montreal.
