Jon Horvath began teaching photography at MIAD in 2009. His creative process sits at the intersection of new media, photography, and performance. Routinely incorporating concepts of mapping, travel, surveillance, and ritual, his personal lens is often filtered through a subtle humor. His work is influenced by American literature, pop culture, and his interest in the unfixed nature of a photographic experience.
Horvath received his MFA from the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee and his work has been exhibited nationally in galleries including The Print Center (Philadelphia), Macy Gallery at Columbia University (New York), Newspace Center for Photography (Portland), and The Detroit Center for Contemporary Photography. His work is currently held in the permanent collections of the Philadelphia Museum of Art, The Haggerty Museum of Art, and is included in the Midwest Photographers Project at MoCP. Horvath received a Mary L. Nohl Established Artist Fellowship in 2015. He was also shortlisted for the Lucie Foundation Emerging Artist Award and chosen for the Photolucida Critical Mass Top 50 that same year. In 2011, he was named a US Flash Forward winner by The Magenta Foundation.
