In 2017 the Oakland Museum invited me and artist Chris Treggiairi to construct a memorial in the museum to the victims of the Ghost Ship Fire. This interactive installation was part of the exhibition Metamorphosis and Migration. After its installation at the Oakland Museum Mayor Libby Schaaf invited us to install the piece at Oakland City Hall.

‘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 is a Sacramento based artist who creates works on paper, videos, and installations that are fueled by his love of drawing and mark making. His work is concept driven, and often utilizes objects that reference printmaking and multiplicities. In addition Foucault often collaborates with other artists and institutions to create Social Practice projects that engage the public and address social issues.

Foucault has participated in numerous exhibitions nationwide and internationally 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, K. Imperial Fine Art, 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.

In addition to his own practice, Foucault is the Co-Founder of the Mobile Arts Platform (MAP), a Northern California based art-making and curatorial team that creates interactive “pop-up” mobile exhibitions that directly engage the public. The MAP project was included in the American Association of Museums annual reports’ “Trends Watch”. 

Foucault has received funding from the California Arts Council, Creative Work Fund, Wattis Family Foundation, the City of San Jose Public Art Program, the City of Oakland’s Cultural Funding Program, US Bank, Valley Medical Center, the Seattle Center Foundation, Puffin Foundation and the Zellerbach Family Foundation.

Foucault’s work has been reviewed in People Magazine, KQED Arts, The San Francisco Chronicle, The SF Weekly (Pick of the Week), ArtWeek, Wired Magazine, KTVU Fox News, ABC 7 News, CBS Bay Area News, and Artnet Magazine. His drawing Four Square was featured on the Cover of California Home and Design Magazine. Foucault’s work is represented by K. Imperial Fine Art (San Francisco, CA).
