Debra Scacco

Misplaced Rain

Artist and curator, Debra Scacco, questions how value is prioritized. Common threads of mapping and storytelling are present throughout her artistic practice. Working closely with cartographers, historians, activists, and scientists, Scacco studies the lines that direct everyday life, including boundaries drawn by policy, infrastructure, and societal perception.

Debra Scacco’s research-based practice spans the creation of studio works, installations, public art, curating, teaching, writing, community engagement and oral history. She is dedicated to lateralizing knowledge to challenge hierarchies and historic structures of power. Rooted in her own experiences of immigration, Scacco re-envisions the visible and invisible lines that seek to establish boundaries of access and understanding.
