Dive into the unique creative journey of artist Alain-Martin Richard with the launch of an impressive new bilingual monograph. In this book, authors Paul Couillard, Doyon/Demers, Hélène La Roche, Paul Ouellet, Nicolas Reeves, Clive Robertson, Guy Sioui Durand and Marianne Trudel join Alain-Martin Richard to provide a comprehensive picture of Richard's career and practice, from his theatrical experiments of the 1970s to his global "manoeuvres" in the 2000s.

Alain-Martin Richard lives and works in Quebec. As an artist, he has presented manoeuvre and performance works in North America, Europe and Asia. He also works as a curator, critic and essayist, publishing articles in numerous journals on theatre, performance, installation and manoeuvre. He was a member of the former collectives Inter/Le Lieu and The Nomads , and remains active with Les Causes perdues in© and Folie/Culture. His works often deploy multiple planes of reality as in l'Atopie textuelle (2000) and The Route to Rosa (2006). Alain-Martin Richard is currently a visiting professor at Laval University's School of Visual Arts, and he is in the midst of preparing a major project for the seventh edition of Manif d'art.
