Jerko Denegri (1936, Split) is a critic and art historian. He observed and influenced above all the generation of the 1970s, including New Tendencies. His theory of the "other line", in which he came up with a genealogy of the neo-avant-garde that deviated from canonic models, became an influential factor in recent artistic developments.

Studied history and geography at the Viša pedagoška škola u Splitu in Split (1955–1958) and art history at the Faculty of Philosophy, University of Belgrade (1954–1964, 1990 Ph.D. in history of contemporary art). 1965–1989 curator, Muzej savremene umetnosti, Beograd, Belgrade. Editor in chief of the contemporary art magazine Moment: casopis za vizuelne medije. Curator of the Yugoslavian contributions to the Paris Biennales of 1971, 1976, and 1983, and the Venice Biennales of 1976 and 1982. Lives in Belgrade.
