Entitled Jean-Pierre Larocque: Clay Sculpture and Drawings, the exhibition, accompanied by a catalogue, opened in 2006. A film of the project was presented at the International Festival of Films on Art later that year. His work was featured in Raw/Medium/Rare/Well Done, the ceramics exhibition in the FOFA Gallery in March 2009.

Ayant vécu et enseigné aux États-Unis pendant une dizaine d’années, l’artiste entreprend également de nombreux voyages en Europe et en Asie. Ses œuvres font parti de nombreuses collections publiques et privées en plus d’être exposées régulièrement en Amérique du Nord. L’exposition solo Trapping Shadows a inauguré le nouveau Gardiner Museum of Ceramics de Toronto en 2006. Jean-Pierre Larocque réside et travaille à Montréal.
