Jon has a background in film and queer studies, and prior to arriving at Stanford worked as a contemporary art curator at The Power Plant, Oakville Galleries and the Art Gallery of Ontario in Toronto. Jon's writing on cinema and contemporary art has been published in many anthologies, catalogues and journals, and he recently co-edited (with Sam Ashby) Little Joe magazine #5. His current research focuses on video art's capacity for intimacy and gossip, and how the medium catalyzed artists' sexual and social experimentation in the 1970s–80s.
