Robert C. Morgan

PROYECTOSMONCLOVA is pleased to announce the first individual exhibition of internationally renowned art critic, artist, writer, art historian, and lecturer, Robert C. Morgan (1947, USA) in Latin America.

An authoritative critic and intellectual of the New York contemporary art scene, for fifty years Morgan has maintained a dedicated studio practice in parallel to his writing. His work has been shown at the Whitney Museum of American Art (1976) and has been included in exhibitions by seminal curators including Lucy Lippard at Printed Matter (1984) and Helene Winer at Artists Space (1977).

The exhibition, Robert C. Morgan: Concept and Painting, will offer a historical overview of pieces made throughout Morgan’s career. Selected works include drawings, paintings, and photographic documentation of performances from the 1960’s to today.

Since 1970, Morgan has devoted his focus to testing the limits of abstraction to explore the potential for geometric form to suggest space and depth within a picture plane. His architectonic approach utilizes a deliberately restrained scale and a limited color pallet to enhance the viewer’s awareness of the interplay between compositional elements as well as the sense of space suggested by the reflection vs. absorption of light by his canvas’s pigments. 

Morgan holds an MFA in Sculpture from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst (1975), and a Ph.D. in contemporary art history and aesthetics from the School of Education, New York University (1978). Dr. Morgan lives in New York, where he lectures at the School of Visual Arts and Pratt Institute. He is Professor Emeritus in Art History from the Rochester Institute of Technology, and, since 2011, a member of the European Academy of Sciences and Arts in Salzburg.
