Art et Chimie: Polymers in the creation-reproduction,
conservation-restoration, and exhibition of works of cultural
Maison de la Chimie - Paris
October 15-17, 2002

The purpose of the conference is to show the impact of the use of
polymers on the various phases of the life of works of art, both
ancient and modern, from their creation to the subsequent steps
taken to preserve, restore, and display them in museums. The
speakers will in particular appraise the contribution of both
natural and synthetic polymers to the creation and treatment of
works of art designed from an extensive range of materials (stone,
ceramics, glass, metal, textile, wood, etc.), whilst also looking
into the problems raised by their ageing process. The conference
will focus on five topics reflecting the diversity of these
materials' applications:

    topic 1: Modern artistic creation from a dual angle of design
    and formulation

    topic 2: Conservation - restoration: protection and coating of

    topic 3: Conservation - restoration: strengthening of porous

    topic 4: Moulding and impression techniques for reproduction

    topic 5: Polymers for collections management
