Artist Information: Peter Foucault and Chris Treggiari

Peter Foucault

‘Foucault’s procedure connects his work with the Surrealist lineage of automatism, the chance-enamored strategies of Fluxus and oddities on the fringes of art such as Harold Cohen’s computer-generated drawings.’


-Kenneth Baker, San Francisco Chronicle

Peter Foucault creates works on paper, videos, and installations that are fueled by his love of drawing and mark making. In addition to his own practice, he is the Co-Founder of the Mobile Arts Platform (MAP), an artmaking and curatorial team that creates interactive exhibitions that directly engage the public. Foucault has participated in exhibitions at venues such as the Getty Museum and Getty Villa, Oakland Museum of California,Torrance Art Museum, California Museum, San Luis Obispo Museum of Art, Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Smithsonian Institutes’ Freer and Sackler Gallery, Kit Schulte Contemporary (Berlin, Germany), The University of Salford (Manchester, England), and The Orange County Center for Contemporary Art. Foucault’s work has been reviewed in People Magazine, KQED Arts, The San Francisco Chronicle, The SF Weekly, ArtWeek, Wired Magazine, KTVU Fox News, ABC 7 News, CBS Bay Area News, and Artnet Magazine.
