Born in Cebu City, Philippines, Stephanie Misa currently lives in Vienna, Austria where she graduated from the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna in 2012 in Performative Arts
& Sculpture with Prof. Monica Bonvicini. She has her masters from the Interactive Telecommunications Program, Tisch School of the Arts, New York University.

Her work consistently displays an interest in complex and diverse histories, relating to these topics through her video work, sculpture, installations, prints, and through her writing.
Her current artistic research looks at the persistence of languages relegated to its oral form, and the activation of this “orality” outside the usual educational modes of instruction—
its evolution, cannibalism, appropriation of terms, and creative becomings.

Her most recent projects include: a solo show with Mz* Baltazars Laboratory for Parallel Vienna 2019, “Archipelago Mountain” (Helsinki & Salzburg) with Ana de Almeida, “Behind the
Terrain: sketches on imaginative landscape” (Tokyo, Hanoi, Jogyakarta) with Mika Maruyama, “Out of the Box” with the WeltMuseum Wien (Vienna Ethnographic Museum), and
“Night School” as part of the Academy of Unlearning, Wiener Festwochen 2017.

She has exhibited her work at the Yuka Tsuruno Gallery (JP), Koganei Art Point (JP), Nha San Collective (VT), Galerie 5020 (AT), Sewon Art Space (IDN), C4 Projects (DK), Kunstraum
NeiderÖsterreich (AT), and Gymnasium Gallery (UK) to name a few. She is currently on the board of the Austrian Association of Women Artists (VBKÖ), and is part of the planning group
for the Independent Space Index, an open association of all the independent and artist-run spaces in Vienna.

She received the Artists’ Residency to Jogjakarta, Indonesia from the Austrian Federal Ministry of Arts & Culture in 2016 and was a recipient of the Kültür Gemma Bursary 2014-15.
