''FEMINIST ART FOR 'REAL' MEN''
''My gender assignment is my artist statement''
BEFORE IT KILLS YOU.''
Kevin Beaulieu’s multidisciplinary practice focuses on male identity in a sociological perspective. Using autobiographical fiction, self-portraiture and irony, he explores issues related to virility, violence, sexuality and power through excessively masculine imagery. The artist endeavours to challenge dominant gender standards and reveal the effects of toxic masculinity.
Originally from Montreal-North, in the province of Quebec, Canada, Kevin Beaulieu is a white cis man. He holds an MFA from Concordia University and a BFA in Visual and Media Arts from the Université du Québec à Montréal. He has presented his work in solo and group exhibitions in Quebec, France, the United States and Mexico. He is also co-founder of the artist collective Les Enfants de Chienne.
