Richard Dupont (born 1968) is an American artist who lives and works in New York City. His artistic practice includes installations, sculptures, prints, paintings, and drawings. He received a BA from the Departments of Visual Art and Art and Archeology at Princeton University.[1] His museum exhibitions include The Queens Museum, The Middlebury College Museum of Art (2011),[2] The Hudson Valley Center for Contemporary Art (2008). He has presented major installations at Lever House (2008)[3] and The Flag Art Foundation (2010), both in New York City.[4] His works are included in the collections of The Museum of Modern Art,[5] The Whitney Museum of American Art, The Museum of Fine Arts, Boston, The Cleveland Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Museum, The Hammer Museum, and The New York Public Library Print Collection among many others.[6]


Richard Dupont's work draws from a variety of themes and references, and has been described as post-digital and post-internet. His work references the Body art, Process art and Systems art movements of the 1960s and 1970s. However, he uses 3D digital models of bodies and objects rather than things themselves.[7] Dupont had his body scanned at a General Dynamics facility on The Wright Patterson Air Force Base in 2004, and has been working from these images, translated into both two and three dimensions, since then.[8] An interest in the implications of biometric technologies underpins much of his work.
