Jersey City based artist Anne Percoco studies the interface between nature and culture, re-contextualizing overlooked places, plants, and materials. For the past 10 years she has produced public artworks, exhibitions, web-based projects, and publications, both nationally and internationally. In 2015, she co-founded the Next Epoch Seed Library, a nomadic collection of the seeds of urban weeds, with Ellie Irons.

She earned her BA from Drew University in 2005 and MFA from Rutgers Mason Gross School of the Arts in 2008. She has been a fellow at the Asian Cultural Council and AIR Gallery, and a participant of the Bronx AIM program. Percoco was awarded an Emergency Grant from the Foundation for Contemporary Art and a public sculpture commission from the Randall's Island Park Alliance. She has attended residencies at Wave Hill, Residency Unlimited, Vermont Studio Center, Holes in the Wall Collective, Soho20 Gallery, and Extrapool (Netherlands).
