SUPPORT (the) IMAGE - Consolidation and conservation issues in modern and contemporary painting supports

VIII INTERNATIONAL CONGRESS COLORE e CONSERVAZIONE Venice | 23-24 November 2018

COLORE E CONSERVAZIONE 2018 is the ideal continuation of the 2015 congress that introduced the theme of conservation of modern and contemporary art in a more general vision. The goal of this edition is to offer a greater, in-depth analysis of the complex field of contemporary art conservation, focusing on the treatment phases and reaching a higher level of specificity for the dissemination of international contributions.

C&C 2018 will center on structural treatments and issues in the consolidation of modern and contemporary paintings, in particular how these steps are strictly connected with the artwork image and how they influence its general aesthetics. This year’s subject matter addresses the lack of dissemination and systematization of studies on consolidation and conservation of contemporary painting supports, especially in Italy. The C&C International Congress will offer the opportunity to share scientific and analytical contributions, with great emphasis on case studies and data that could support conservators during their practice and conservation challenges.
