Peter Foucault ~ 'Monks Math #32'
Peter Foucault lives and works in Oakland CA. He creates works on paper, videos, and installations, fueled by his love of drawing and mark making. Foucault's solo shows include K. Imperial Fine Art (San Francisco), Room Gallery (Mill Valley, CA), Micalea Gallery, the SFMOMA Café, and the Richmond Art Center (Richmond, CA). He has also contributed to group shows at the Getty Museum and Getty Villa, Torrance Museum (Los Angeles, CA), Yerba Buena Center for the Arts (San Francisco, 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). His interactive robotic drawing installations have been presented at The NASA Aimes Research Center and more. In addition to his own practice, Foucault is the Co-Founder of the Mobile Arts Platform (MAP), a Bay Area based artmaking and curatorial team that creates interactive “pop-up” mobile exhibitions. The MAP project was included in the American Association of Museums 2012 annual reports’ “Trends Watch”. Foucault’s work has been reviewed and featured in The San Francisco Chronicle, The SF Weekly (Pick of the Week), ArtWeek, Wired Magazine, Stretcher Magazine, Artnet Magazine, California Home and Design Magazine. We are very grateful to Peter for his donation to The Mother Hen Project.
