Juan Ortiz-Apuy’s practice repurposes the language of advertising and product display in order to explore the fetishistic underpinnings behind advertising and the profiling of consumer goods. Ortiz-Apuy lives and works in Montreal. Ortiz-Apuy has a BFA from Concordia University, a post-graduate diploma from the Glasgow School of Art, and an MFA from NSCAD University. His work has been exhibited across Canada and internationally. His upcoming projects include a residency at the IKEA Museum (Älmhult, SE) as well as exhibitions at Truck Contemporary (Calgary); Carleton University Art Gallery (Ottawa); and the Museum of Modern and Contemporary Art (Toulouse).
