Jovana Stokić is the curator of performance art at Location One where she supports the growth of performance art by promoting the works of emerging artists on an international scale, organizing and collaborating on events using a network of people converging at Location One. It shows a commitment to experimentation across all art forms and points to recent efforts to return performance art to its central position within the gallery system. Performances, public panels and discussions promote and seek critical discourses on contemporary performance art practice and related issues.
Location One is extremely grateful to The NY State Council on the Arts, The New York City Department of Cultural Affairs, and Location One’s International Committee for making this event possible.
