Before receiving her MFA from the School of the Art Institute of Chicago, Jessica Caponigro attended Bryn Mawr College where she earned her BA in the History of Art. In her interdisciplinary practice, Caponigro blends egalitarian concepts with ritual, and explores ideas of restriction through repetition, reproduction, and accessibility. Before its dissolution, she was a founding member of the non-anonymous W.I.T.C.H. Chicago as well as the feminist art collective Tracers. She frequently participates in workshops and panels, most recently at the Museum of Contemporary Art Chicago and NYU Florence. She currently lives and works in Boston, Massachusetts, where she operates Snake Hair Press, an independent publisher of prints, zines, and artist books.
