Modern Conservation: What's new?
Icon Paintings Group Conference, 10 October 2014, The Wallace

The Paintings Group is hosting a conference during which the
speakers will discuss various aspects of modern conservation, by
presenting their research and findings as well as a number of case
studies.  The aim of the day is to provide a platform for paintings
conservators to discuss various aspects of modern conservation
including: the deterioration and conservation of contemporary works
of art and problems posed by it; appraisal of new conservation
materials and their properties; new and innovative techniques that
are being developed and used to address conservation problems; or
new and novel ways of using traditional or well known materials
already in the conservator's tool kit.

Topics of discussion will include: recent developments in wet
cleaning systems for unvarnished modern and contemporary painted
surfaces; the treating of and removal of liquefying paint; an
evaluation of adhesives, consolidants and retouching media for the
conservation and treatment of paintings on transparent plastic
supports; Laropal A81 as an alternative to MS2A and other resins;
the use of Kinesio tape as a supportive measure during conservation
treatments; and a review of rigid stretcher insert systems, their
materials and applications.  There will also be a number of case
studies, exploring modern conservation materials and complex ethical
