Jessica Scott's Website

I am a multidisciplinary artist working in performance, sculpture, installation, collage, theater and photography. My work addresses concerns of bodily autonomy, human rights, transnational feminisms, and transformations of the flesh through imaginary, literary and practical means. For the past 15 years I have designed and performed for Broadway shows, in a 1000-gallon aquarium and the Pacific Ocean, internationally, in living rooms and everything in between. I am currently a 2nd year MFA Candidate in Studio Art at University of Massachusetts Amherst. Originally from San Francisco, I received my BA from NYU with a focus on Political Science and Community Organizing. The values communicated to me through a mixed-race, women-led, working class family are present in all my work: written, visual and performed. I am now based in Amherst, MA and New York City.
