On 10 December, the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN) in collaboration with Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofia will organise the seminar Access to Contemporary Art Conservation, at the Moderna Galerija in Ljubljana. The seminar is part of the European project PRACTICs of Contemporary Art.
PRACTICs (Practices, Research, Access, Collaboration, Teaching In Conservation of contemporary art) represent “excellence and innovation in conservation research, a profound will to share knowledge and experiences and continuous collaboration in knowledge development and education.” It is formed by 34 leading European museums, institutions and universities, who have joined hands to assess and implement knowledge gained through European projects in the last decade. This project will set the course for key issues of conservation, preservation, education and public access to conservation.
We are delighted to announce that Non-fiction’s Juha van ‘t Zelfde and Michiel van Iersel have been invited as keynote speakers for this seminar in Slovenia. The theme of their presentation will be in line with last year’s Open Museum marathon at PICNIC, their British Council competition entry Collection of Crowds, and their thoughts on the ubiquitous museum.
We look forward to meeting new friends in Slovenia.
