Martin Beauregard holds a Master’s degree from the École des Beaux-arts de Bordeaux in France as well as a double Ph.D. from the Université du Québec à Montréal in Canada and the Université Paris 1 Panthéon-Sorbonne in France. His work has appeared in numerous exhibitions (around 40 in the past 10 years) including the Montreal Museum of Fine Arts (Montreal, Canada), the Musée national des beaux-arts du Québec (Québec City, Canada), the CAPC Bordeaux Museum of Contemporary Art (Bordeaux, France), Location One (New York, U.S.A.) and Asahi Art Square (Tokyo, Japan).
Beauregard’s artistic process is organized around relationships between narrativity and digital simulation. He strives to develop a form of narrative art with evolutionary, emergent and complex properties. Each work has a deliberate relation to ecology, the economy and social and ethical issues linked to the development of artificial intelligence and the utilization of digital data. Migration, exile, memory and trauma are central themes in his production. His research produces generative works and machinimas presented in projections, installations, virtual reality, augmented reality and 2D or 3D printing.
