The polymathic Robert C. Morgan, highly proflific art critic, art historian, curator and poet, started out as a visual artist and maintains this practice as was evidenced by the display of recent work at Sideshow in Williamsburg last month. Partially concurrent with that show is a historic survey of works dating back to 1970 at Bjorn Ressle (16 East 79th Street, extended through May 29) that includes documentation of performances, photo montage works with gestural, painterly elements, and Veksö III (1971,) a minimalist gem that plays distressed surface against focused structure to achieve clarity and intimacy in equal degrees.

This was an artcritical PIC in May 2009
