I’m very proud to be part of this exhibition
Made to last: the conservation of art
A NETS Victoria exhibition in partnership with the Centre for Cultural Materials Conservation at the University of Melbourne and supported by Latrobe Regional Gallery.
Contemporary artists use traditional, modern and sometimes unconventional materials for a variety of reasons; the materials are integral to their conceptual practice, workable or readily available. Made to last: the conservation of art highlights the significance of the artist’s original intent to assist in the long term preservation of their work, providing a ‘behind the scenes’ insight into their practice. This exhibition, curated by Sherryn Vardy, explores investigative methods of conservation including the behaviour of materials over time and techniques used to preserve and document work for the future. Artists: Brook Andrew, Penny Byrne, Juan Ford, Ghostpatrol and Claire Anna Watson.
