three-dimensional contemporary art

The position is based in the Conservation Department's recently
refurbished facilities at NGV: International, located on St Kilda

in the examination and treatment of high value works of art. Well
developed practical skills are essential, as is the ability to carry
out complex treatments with limited supervision. A broad knowledge
