    Compiled by Claire Gogarty and Zoe Reid, compilers. Post Prints
    of Contemporary Art: Creation, Curation, Collection and
    Conservation. Proceedings of Conference held at the Irish Museum
    of Modern Art by IPCRA (Irish Professional Conservators and
    Restorers Association), September 21-22, 2001.

This conference brought together conservators, artists, curators,
collectors, art dealers and the interested public to consider the
issues surrounding the use of the new materials and practices in
contemporary art.

>From film, plastics and media deliberately chosen to be perishable,
to the salvaged materials of  "Outsider " artists, the use of new
and unconventional media provides an aesthetic and ethical
challenge, to artists, collectors, conservators and audiences alike.
