Descripción del Artista

Robert C. Morgan, es crítico de arte, historiador, curador, poeta y artista visual. Magíster en Escultura por la University of Massachusetts en 1975, y doctor en Historia del Arte Contemporáneo por la University of New York en 1978. Ha enseñado en la University of New York, la Wichita State University, la University of Rochester, la Escuela de Artes Visuales del Barnard College y la Columbia University. Actualmente es profesor adjunto de Bellas Artes en la Escuela de Posgrado en Bellas Artes del Pratt Institute, Brooklyn, Nueva York. Su formación como artista y crítico le permite trabajar como curador independiente con un enfoque único para abordar las piezas de estudio desde diferentes perspectivas a la vez, y en diálogo entre sí. Como curador, organizó retrospectivas de Allan Kaprow y de Komar y Melamid en el Ulrich Museum of Art, Kansas. Curó Concept-Decoratif, en colaboración con la galería Holly Solomon (Nueva York, 1990), y organizó la exhibición Logo Non Logo, junto con el crítico francés Pierre Restany, en Thread Waxing Space (Nueva York, 1994). Robert C. Morgan (born 1943) is an American art critic, art historian, curator, poet, and painter. Received his M.F.A. in Sculpture from the University of Massachusetts, Amherst in 1975 and his Ph.D. in contemporary art history from New York University in 1978. Professor Morgan has had an extensive academic career. He has taught at New York University, Wichita State University, the University of Rochester, the School of Visual Arts, Barnard College, and Columbia University. From 1981- 2001, he was Professor of the History and Theory of Art at the Rochester Institute of Technology. He is currently an Adjunct Professor of Fine Arts in the Graduate School of Fine Arts at Pratt Institute in Brooklyn, New York. Morgan has worked extensively as an independent curator. He has organized museum retrospectives of Allan Kaprow (1979) and Komar and Melamid (1980), both at the Ulrich Museum of Art in Kansas. In 1990, he curated “Concept -- Decoratif” in conjunction with the Holly Solomon Gallery in New York. From 1989-90, he directed a gallery in SoHo (New York) where he curated a dozen exhibitions of both emerging and established artists, including Carolee Schneemann, Nancy Grossman, Hung Liu, Hong-Wen Lin, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Mel Bochner, Muntadas, and Max Ernst. In 1994, he organized “Logo Non Logo“ with French critic Pierre Restany at the Thread Waxing Space in New York, which later traveled to the Art Museum of the University of South Florida in Tampa. Morgan has authored numerous books, catalogs and monographs on contemporary artists in various countries. His book on the American conceptualist Robert Barry was published by Karl Kerber Press in Bielefeld, Germany (1986). Haim Steinbach was published by the Musee d’Art Contemporain, Bordeaux (1988). Duchamp, Androgyny, Etc., (on Marcel Duchamp) was published by Editions Antoine Candau in Paris (1990). A Hans Bellmer Miscellany was published by Baum/Malmburg in Malmö, Sweden in 1993. His Turkish Bath installation at Artists Space in 1976 is an early example of post-conceptual art. Morgan frequently writes art criticism for the Brooklyn Rail. His books and collected critical essays published include commentaries on conceptual art, post-conceptual art and the new media arts (Umbrella Associates, 1992). He has published the following books in the United States: After the Deluge: Essays on the Art of the Nineties, (Red Bass Publications, 1993), Conceptual Art: An American Perspective (McFarland, 1994); Art into Ideas: Essays on Conceptual Art (Cambridge University Press, 1996), Between Modernism and Conceptual Art (McFarland, 1997): and The End of the Art World (Allworth Press, 1998). His critical anthologies on Gary Hill (2000) and Bruce Nauman (2002) were published by Johns Hopkins University Press. An edited volume of the late writings by the critic Clement Greenberg was published by the University of Minnesota Press, 2003. In 1995, he traveled to Korea on a Fulbright Fellowship.
