Future Resident--Jessica Caponigro

Jessica Caponigro is a writer, artist, and educator, raised in Eastern Pennsylvania by fiercely independent Sicilian women who strongly believe in holistic medicine, the powers of the earth, and intuition. Her practice is interdisciplinary, blending accessible and egalitarian concepts with ritual and performance. In her individual artistic practice, she creates environments of manipulated objects and patterns, using line, geometry, and accessible materials to address issues surrounding restriction, both physical and psychological. Prior to the mass formation of anonymous W.I.T.C.H. covens in 2017, she helped establish a non-anonymous Chicago based coven, where they facilitated multiple public rituals. Along with her studio practice, she worked for seven years as an instructor at the City Colleges of Chicago, teaching printmaking and art history. She was also a part of the the feminist art collective Tracers, and frequently participates in workshops, most recently at the MCA Chicago and NYU Florence. She currently lives and works in Boston, where she operates Snake Hair Press, an independent publisher of multiples, zines, and artist books.
