Call for Papers

"Conservation on Exhibition"
The 1st AICCM Exhibition Special Interest Group Symposium

The AICCM Exhibitions Special Interest Group (ExSIG) will host its
inaugural symposium in Melbourne at the National Gallery of Victoria
in March 2014.

The program will feature 20-minute presentations, with each session
followed by a Q and A.  Several panel discussions and adjunct poster
sessions are also planned.

As an inaugural conference on a familiar topic this is an
opportunity to examine past present and future practices and trends
in relation to the display and borrowing/lending of works of art. As
exhibitions are the result of interdisciplinary collaboration,
papers are also sought that explore the relationship of conservation
activities with those of registrar, collection manager, artist,
installer, designer and curator.

The AICCM Exhibitions SIG invites the submission of abstracts for
papers (maximum 600 words) and power-point posters (400 words) on
any of the following themes:

    Sustainability: economic, social, environmental

    Blockbusters, exhibition content

    Environmental parameters for display and loan including
    microclimates, current LED and post HVAC discussions

    Condition reporting methodology and legal rationale


    Artwork preparation/treatment

    Packing / transport / couriering

    Exhibition management

    Open display: attachment and protection of artworks

    Display mechanisms and material selection/testing

    Contemporary installations
