Senior Staff Changes at the Getty Conservation Institute

In September 2007, Jemima Rellie joined the Getty Conservation
Institute <URL:> as the new assistant director
of Communications and Information Resources. Jemima came to the
Institute from Tate in London where she had been head of Digital
Programs since 2001. There she led the strategy, implementation, and
delivery of the organization's public-oriented digital activities,
increasing the range and quality of programs offered online.
Previously, Jemima had worked in art book publishing, including time
at Phaidon Press and at Macmillan Publishers, and in commercial new
media development. She holds a master's degree in the social history
of art from the University of Leeds.

Jemima will work to increase the impact of the GCI's dissemination
activities, which include the Information Center; AATA Online and
other bibliographic services; the GCI's book publications and
ephemera; the Institute's online presence; and Conservation: The
Getty Conservation Institute Newsletter. She succeeds Kristin Kelly,
who is now a principal project specialist with the Institute
overseeing the GCI's public programming; the scholars and interns
programs; and a range of special projects. Kristin had headed up the
department since December 2004.

In October, Kathleen Dardes was appointed head of GCI Education. A
textile conservator by training, Kathleen has worked at the
Metropolitan Museum of Art and the Boston Museum of Fine Arts before
joining the GCI's Training Program in 1988. After a number of years
in this role and subsequently as a project specialist in Field
Projects, Kathleen was promoted to senior project specialist in 2001
to focus on the Institute's renewed education efforts. Since then,
she led a number of initiatives for the GCI including the Directors'
Retreats for Conservation Education and efforts in preventive
conservation and integrated emergency management.

In her new role, Kathleen will provide leadership and vision for the
GCI's newly independent Education department, and will continue to
define ways that the GCI might best serve the evolving educational
needs of the conservation field.
