About

Christian studies modern and contemporary art, with particular interests in photography, film, and video. His current research concerns parody and humor within 1960s and 70s American avant-garde film, and how such methods of caricature asserted the movement’s propensities for levity and play. Other interests include early writings in the history of photography, the intersection of technology and perception, and the emergence of media cultures during eras of social and political agonism. Prior to his arrival at Stanford, Christian held positions at various art institutions, including: Magnum Photos, David Zwirner Gallery, the Museum of Contemporary Art (MOCA) Cleveland, Transformer Station, and the Tufts University Art Galleries.
