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


Foucault has participated in numerous exhibitions nationwide, with recent solo shows at K. Imperial Fine Art (San Francisco), Room Gallery (Mill Valley, CA), Micalea Gallery, the SFMOMA Café, and the Richmond Art Center (Richmond, CA). His work has been included in group shows at the Getty Museum and Getty Villa, Torrance Museum (Los Angeles, CA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, CA), Marine Contemporary (Santa Monica, CA), 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 (Los Angeles, CA).

Foucault has recently presented lectures at Stanford University, City College, San Francisco University and the SETI Institute (Mountain View, CA).

Foucault’s work has been reviewed in The San Francisco Chronicle, The SF Weekly (Pick of the Week), ArtWeek, Wired Magazine, Stretcher Magazine, and Artnet Magazine.
