Care of Sculpture in Galleries, Exhibitions and Collections
To: Thursday 01.03.18
West Dean College of Arts and Conservation, West Sussex
This course will provide a broad ranging background to the subject for both traditional sculpture and modern and contemporary 3D artworks. It will cover a range of sculptural materials and will provide relevant information about fabrication and surface finishes where it might specifically affect the delegates in the course of their work. The course will discuss how sculptures may degrade or become damaged and propose preventive care measures for display in the indoor and outdoor settings. We will also look at suitable storage and packing for different materials as well as condition checking for exhibitions and collections. There will be a visit to the Cass Sculpture Foundation at Goodwood.
