Jean Dupuy (born November 22, 1925) is a French-born artist. He is a pioneer of work combining art and technology. He works in the fields of conceptual art, performance art, painting, installations, sculptures and video art. In the 1970s he curated many performance art events involving different artists from Fluxus, the New York's avant-garde and neo-dada scene. Many of his works are part of important collections such as Centre Pompidou in Paris and MAMAC of Nice.
Dupuy started his career as a painter, but in 1967 he destroyed most of his works by throwing them into the Seine. On moving to New York he exhibited his installation Heart Beats Dust at the Museum of Modern Art and Brooklyn Museum, as part of the 1968 exhibition "The Machine as Seen at the End of the Mechanical Age".
