Treggiari's artistic practice strives to investigate how art can enter the public realm in a way that connects wide ranges of people and neighborhoods in a variety of communities. He highlights diverse community identities, shared histories, and personal stories through participatory, mobile platforms that encourage exploration from the viewer. Often these platforms entail creative methods that aim to turn the passive viewer into an active art-maker who can participate in sharing a personal voice in a community dialogue. Treggiari's work has been on view at such venues as the Venice Biennale 2012 American Pavilion; the Torrance Art Museum; the Getty Museum; Berkeley Art Museum; Yerba Buena Center for the Arts; the San Jose Museum of Art; The Oakland Art Museum; and the ZERO1 Biennial. He has received grants from the Puffin Foundation; the San Francisco Arts Commission; the Creative Work Fund; the Arts Commission of San Jose; The Seattle Center Foundation, and the Zellerbach Foundation. He is currently a teaching artist in-residence at the Center for Art and Public Life at the California College of the Arts. Read more at christreggiari.com.
