The Robert C. Morgan Conceptual Art Collection of Correspondence, Interviews, Artists’ Books, Monographs, Catalogs, and Ephemera

Featuring John Baldessari, Robert Barry, Douglas Huebler, Sol LeWitt, and Lawrence Weiner

Robert C. Morgan (b. 1943) is an internationally renowned American art critic, art historian, curator, lecturer, poet, and painter. He completed his dissertation, “The Role of Documentation in Conceptual Art: An Aesthetic Inquiry,” at New York University (School of Education) in 1978. It was the first dissertation on Conceptual Art in the U.S. and was later rewritten, updated and published as Conceptual Art: An American Perspective (McFarland & Company, 1994).

The present collection springs from Morgan’s assiduous research and writing, and provides copious evidence of and discerning insight into the enduring phenomenon of Conceptual art, with particular attention to Lawrence Weiner, Robert Barry, Peter Downsbrough, John Baldessari, Dan Graham, Douglas Huebler, Seth Siegelaub, Allan Kaprow, Joseph Kosuth, Sol LeWitt, and Ed Ruscha, to name a few. The collection includes artists’ books, monographs, catalogs, cards, posters, recordings, correspondence, manuscripts, typescripts, and so forth, and represents the work of more than 100 artists, writers, curators, and editors.
