The Twitter Critic: Three exhibitions in 140 characters each

Detail from "Out of Body" by Ed Pien

Ed Pien: "Lost Souls" at Birch Libralato (129 Tecumseth St., until Nov. 24): Wispy ghost-traces of dream visions and steel-grey cutouts of dense forests and boats in passage; quiet and haunting.

Guy Ben-Ner: "Stealing Beauty" at the Museum of Contemporary Canadian Art (952 Queen St. W., until Nov. 9): Godardian Marxist family melodrama; a hilariously impish treatise on love, property and theft starring IKEA.

Kristine Moran: "Between Life and Death" at Daniel Faria Gallery (188 St. Helens Ave., until Nov. 24): Vivid kaleidoscopic painting; it doesn't always fly, but most often it does, and it goes off like a firework.
