Call for posters


"The Picture So Far... 50 Years of Painting Conservation"
Faraday Theatre
Royal Institution, London, UK
Friday 12 July 2013

The British Association of Paintings Conservator-Restorers is
pleased to welcome poster submissions for the forthcoming
conference. (See DistList instance 26:43, Saturday, March 30, 2013).

The conference is the first major retrospective of painting
conservation practice to be held in the UK. Speakers will explore
how conservation practice, philosophy, teaching, technology and
professional organisation have evolved over the last half century.
If you have undertaken research in this area or would like to
present material that would reflect this historical enquiry into our
profession we welcome your submission. Alternatively, the conference
proceedings will lead to a panel discussion session where the
principles of our profession today and the challenges that face
painting conservators in the future will be examined. If you would
like to present material reflecting your approach to current
concerns, we wish to hear from you.

Poster presentations are particularly well suited to material with
visual impact. Your poster should be designed to fit on A1 (841 x
594 mm) poster/s. Selected posters will be displayed prominently at
the conference location and will also be published in the conference
post-prints. There will also be the opportunity to make your poster
available on the BAPCR / The Picture Restorer website. If you would
like to submit a poster for consideration, please send your
provisional title and a short summary of the proposed content to
Nancy Wade at the picturesofar<-at->gmail<.>com, by 3 May 2013. Successful
submissions will be notified by 6 May. Prior to the conference the
poster must be supplied in printed format and final texts for
publication will be required by 1 August 2013.
