Jacqueline Stojanović is a multidisciplinary artist living and working on the unceded lands of the Wurundjeri Woi Wurrung people of the eastern Kulin Nation. She is an artist, weaver and educator who works with historic and contemporary textile processes. The impetus of Stojanović’s expanded practice is grafted to her belief in weaving as an ancient carrier of culture. She continues the tradition of hand weaving within a contemporary framework to memorialise the cultural practice of her parents respective homelands in former-Yugoslavia and Vietnam. Her works borrow the vocabulary of Abstraction and assemble a host of materials from the industrial to the domestic, collaging time scapes, memories, translations, built environments, and folk traditions, to navigate shifts in collective social and material values, past and present.

Jacqueline holds a Bachelor of Fine Art from Monash University and graduated with Honours from the Victorian College of the Arts in 2015. Following her tertiary studies, Stojanović undertook research in the Caucasus, Middle East, and Eastern Europe to further learn histories of flat woven textile design. During 2017 she was an artist in residence at The Icelandic Textile Centre in Blönduós, Iceland, and since returning to Australia in 2018, she has held group and solo exhibitions nationally and in Aotearoa New Zealand.


Her works are held in public and private collections including The Justin Art House Museum, The Australian National University, along with a series of works made in collaboration with her mentor John Nixon, at the National Gallery of Victoria. She was a finalist for the Darebin Art Prize at Bundoora Homestead in 2021, and the Arthur Guy Memorial Painting Prize in 2023. In 2022 she was funded by the Ian Potter Cultural Trust to undertake research in residence at Lottozero in Prato, Italy, and the Fondazione Lisio in Florence, Italy. Jacqueline currently teaches Woven Textile Design at RMIT University and Tapestry Workshops for new settlers at Foundation House in Naarm Melbourne, where she is based.


Jacqueline is represented by Haydens in Naarm Melbourne, Australia.
