of modern and contemporary art through technical examination,
documentation and minor treatment of artworks in the Tate's care.
Emphasis will be placed on the development of skills and knowledge
of conservation issues related to modern and contemporary art. There

Time and UKP1,500 have been allocated for research related travel
