As a result of the wide spectrum of strategies and the conceptual drive behind the production, his work has been located in the Conceptual Art tradition (e.g. the exhibition Conceptual Filiations).
Stankievech has published in academic journals, critical theory anthologies, artist catalogues, magazines, and fiction.
In 2007, he was one of the founding faculty members to establish the experimental art college Yukon School of Visual Arts--a unique institution bringing together the local indigenous government, the state ministry of education and the local grass roots art community. As part of the curriculum, he created and curated the Over The Wire project series that invites established artists to collaborate with students to produce new work under the restriction of long-distance communication.
In 2011, he co-founded the publishing project K. Verlag | Press based in Dawson City, Canada and Berlin, Germany.
