Forum on Thangkas
ICOM-CC Conference, New Delhi, Sept 2008

Please note that a 2.5 hour session entitled A Forum Discussion on
the Conservation of Thangkas is currently being organized during the
ICOM-CC Triennial Conference in New Delhi, September 22-26-2008. The
session is a joint initiative of 3 ICOM-CC Working Groups: Textiles,
Paintings and Ethnographic Collections.

The aim is to formal/informal presentations of up to 15 minutes on
thangka conservation projects, thangka treatment case studies or
material studies, or ethical issues involved with thangka
conservation. The talks would be followed by a question period and
forum discussion open to all in attendance.  The idea is to provide
an informal venue for people interested in this topic, to get to
know each other, ask questions and share ideas. Given that the
location of the conference is New Delhi, we especially wish to
provide an opportunity to hear the viewpoints of Indian and Asian

We welcome your suggestions and proposals. If you are interested, or
if you know someone who may be interested, please contact us to
discuss your ideas. We would appreciate receiving a short (250
words) summary of your proposal, a title, and a short biography, by
June 20 2008 if possible.

On behalf of the Coordinators of the ICOM-CC Working Groups on
Ethnographic Collections, on Textiles, and on Paintings:
