Past Present: Conversations across Time
Allentown Art Museum of Lehigh Valley
Scheller and Fowler Galleries
Past Present establishes a visual dialogue between seven contemporary artists/artist teams and select masterworks in our Samuel H. Kress Collection. Each artist has created an installation that responds to one or more of the Kress paintings, which have been moved from the Museum’s Kress Gallery for this one-of-a-kind exhibition. Media include paintings, videos, sound art, interior design, sculpture, and installation art. Artist are Creighton Michael, Pinkney Herbert, Gregory Coates, Sanford Wurmfeld, Alison Hall, and the collaborative teams of Jonsara Ruth and Lorella Di Cintio, and Scott Sherk and Pat Badt.
