Conserving Canvas Symposium at Yale University

I just registered for the Conserving Canvas Symposium at the Institute for the Preservation of Cultural Heritage at Yale University. This will be the first major international gathering on the subject since 1974.

According to the organizers, the symposium will address historical approaches to the structural treatment of canvas paintings; current methods, materials, and research; and the challenges facing the structural conservation of modern and contemporary works.

With today’s field embracing minimal-intervention techniques and maintaining differing opinions on the efficacy of more invasive approaches, the symposium will provide a long overdue forum to reevaluate historical and current practices as well as inform future directions for the conservation of canvas painting.
