Jocelyne Alloucherie, OC (born February 8, 1947) is a Canadian sculptor and academic.
Born in Quebec City, Alloucherie received a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree from Université Laval in 1971 and a Master of Fine Arts degree in 1981 from Concordia University. She has taught visual arts and art history at the Université Laval, the Université du Québec à Montréal, Concordia University and the University of Ottawa.
Jocelyne Alloucherie offered some reflections on the development of her work in the exhibit guide to Climats (Climates) held at the Carleton University Art Gallery in 2010: "I develop rich bodies of work, grouped together under the same title and whose relations change according to the time and place of their exhibition. Like pieces of music, they undergo variation according to the way they are interpreted, which is a function of the space in which they are shown. The conceptual thread of a work is constant, but the way it is exhibited is not absolutely fixed"
