Albert Kresch


A new model of modern art has emerged since MOMA’s 2004 reopening, one that is quite helpful in appreciating the long yet underknown career of Albert Kresch (born 1922). The reconfigured galleries at MOMA were hung to reflect a hard won principle: there have been “a succession of arguments and counter-arguments on the continually disputed…

His complex white plaster sculptures, cast from molds made of plywood, masonite and blue foam, are multi-part forms with neon tubes and/or light bulbs attached to them.
