West Dean College, as part of its professionals in practice series
for 2000, is offering a course in art and object handling.

Designed to explore and review routine methods used in art and
museum object handling, this course is aimed at those already
working in the field at mid-career level. Participants may be a
senior people in an art handling team, independent consultants, or
house managers, where art and object handling forms only part of
their remit.

The course, which has been designed in collaboration with The
Association of Art and Object Handlers, is led by Bruce McAllister,
formerly Gallery Manager of the Whitechapel Art Gallery and Head of
Art Handling at The Tate Gallery, and Mani Bermejo, current Head of
the Art Handling Team at The National Portrait Gallery.

Highlights of the course include a study day at, and sponsored by,
The Tate Gallery; a training day on transport, packing and handling
co-presented by Momart Ltd, a company that coordinates the
international movement of works of art for exhibitions of all kinds;
and a tour of West Dean House, highlighting problems of art handling
within an historic house, conducted by the College's own
conservation experts.

Speakers will include Ian Dejardin, Curator of the Dulwich Picture
Gallery; Freda Matassa, Head of Collections Management at The Tate
Gallery; Trish Goddard, Head of Art Handling at The National
Gallery; Margaret Reeves, National Trust; and Kathleen Soriano, Head
of Exhibitions and Collections Management at The National Portrait

A limited number of bursaries are available, please enquire.
