Conserving Outdoor Painted Sculpture at the Kröller-Müller Museum, Netherlands, on June 4th and 5th, 2013.
Wednesday 20 February 2013 (Categories: Modern Materials and Contemporary Art)
Hello everybody -
The Modern Materials and Contemporary Art (MMCA) working group of ICOM-CC will hold its Interim meeting Conserving Outdoor Painted Sculpture at the Kröller-Müller Museum, Netherlands, on June 4th and 5th, 2013.
The aim of this meeting is to discuss the current issues, approaches and methods used for conserving outdoor painted sculpture. It is hoped that the meeting will provide an opportunity for dialogue both within the conservation community, and with others, such as the paint industry, fabricators, curators and artists’ estate, foundations and studios. The Kröller-Müller Museum has a large collection of outdoor sculptures with more than 150 works exhibited in its sculpture garden, and as such will provide the perfect setting for the meeting. There will be an opportunity to view the collection, including works under discussion at the meeting.
If you would like to give a presentation at this meeting, please send an abstract of 250 words maximum to firstname.lastname@example.org by March 1st, 2013. All papers will be delivered in English. We are interested in work that deals with any aspect of the conserving outdoor painted sculpture, including technical studies, performance of paints and coatings, case studies of treatments, ethical/ philosophical considerations, legal issues, management of collections, as well as communication/information exchange, especially with related fields outside of conservation.
Full registration fee is € 175. Reduced meeting fee (for ICOM-CC members, speakers and students) is € 115. Please note, the registration fee is all inclusive: coffee, tea, lunch on both days, dinner on June 4th in the sculpture park, closing reception on June 5th and entrance to the National Park and the Kröller-Müller Museum on both days of the meeting.
Hope to see you there!
