Colloquium and Symposium on Mural Paintings of the Silk Road:
Cultural Exchanges between East and West
29th International Symposium on the Conservation and Restoration of
Cultural Property,
Tokyo, Japan
24-26 January, 28 January, 2006

The Japan Center for International Cooperation in Conservation
(JCICC) is engaged in a project for the conservation of mural
paintings found in the Bamiyan valley. As part of these efforts,
tandem work in research relating to the mural paintings of the
Central Asia, particularly in the region surrounding Afghanistan,
has also been initiated.

This International Research Conference aims at providing a forum for
sharing knowledge on mural paintings and their different
interpretations within art history as well as in other related
areas. Moreover, this event is intended to also serve an opportunity
for developing discourse so as to surmount those theories based on a
simplified opposition between eastern and western influences on the
techniques, materials, motifs and patterns found in mural paintings,
all reflecting the combinations of numerous cultures that once
flourished along the Silk Road. Reports supplied by the different
countries on current issues and case studies on the mural painting
conservation and preservation will constitute the basis for
continuous discussion.

There will be a 3-day round-table colloquium and a 1-day symposium.
Both conferences will be held in Japanese and English. Participation
fees include reception and materials, and will be set by early
December 2005.

Requests for information and registration should be submitted no
later than December 5, 2005. The programmes and information are
