Tate Modern to host New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art (NACCA) event


New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art (NACCA) is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network through which 15 early stage researchers are investigating a fascinating and varied set of as yet under-explored aspects of contemporary art conservation.

The topics addressed by the researchers range from looking at strategies for the conservation of computer-based artworks to questions concerning the identity, values and authenticity of artworks, to rethinking historically grown professional distinctions amongst museum practitioners.

On the afternoon of Monday 16th January 2017, Tate Modern will host a public event starting at 16:00 when the NACCA researchers will each briefly present on a key message, question or challenge that they wish to communicate about their research. NACCA supervisors and management will attend also and it is our pleasure to be able to invite members of the public to join us.

The presentations will be followed by a networking opportunity during a poster session from 17:45 to 18:45.

The event is free to attend however we must ask those interested in attending to please register with John McNeill, Tate’s Collection Care Research Manager (john.mcneill@tate.org.uk) by the 4th January 2017.

More information about NACCA can be found on the website http://nacca.eu/.
