Jovana Stokic is a Belgrade-born, New York-based art historian and curator. She is currently on the faculty of the MFA Art Practice, School of Visual Arts, New York, and New York University Steinhardt Department of Art and Art Professions, and Art History Department, SUNY New Paltz. She holds a PhD from the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University. Stokic is a former fellow at the New Museum of Contemporary Art, New York; a researcher at the Whitney Museum of American Art, New York; the curator of the Kimmel Center Galleries, New York University; and the performance curator at Location One, New York.

Co-author of The Methuen Drama Companion to Performance Art, which offers a comprehensive guide to the major issues and interdisciplinary debates concerning performance in art contexts that have developed over the last decade; and the essay for 59th Venice Biennale exhibition catalog of Montenegro. She is a member of AICA, Serbia.

Her research profile reflects her commitment to inclusive, feminist, intersectional, and interdisciplinary approaches to contemporary art history. The critical practice of undoing monocultures is her defining source of inspiration in our shared precarious present.

"I am looking forward to sharing with the ACROSS residency community the book project I am currently developing as a continuation of my dedication to the feminist activation of art's institutions, titled « Global Feminist Curating ». This anthology argues for curating as a form of practice that embodies skeptical inquiry into situated knowledge in the presence of history, geography, ability, class, and power. The residency will provide a wonderful opportunity to further my research and writing by engaging with local artists, cultural practitioners, and communities."
