Conserving Knowledge | Masterpiece Symposium 2020

How could conservation be more intrinsic to the public understanding of works of art? This discussion explores the relationship between conservation, curation and academic art history; considers how best to communicate information about historical materials, current conservation practices and historical methods; asks how conservation could become a more diverse and inclusive field, both as a profession and in terms of the objects that conservation departments prioritise; and thinks about what it means to put conservation on display.
