INCCA - Asia Pacific

From: Bettina Ebert <be<-a>
Date: Monday, October 20, 2014
A new regional group of the International Network for the
Conservation of Contemporary Art (INCCA) has recently been launched.
INCCA - Asia Pacific was officially launched on 14 September 2014 in
Melbourne, with the aim of bringing together conservators and art
practitioners involved in the care of contemporary art within this
culturally diverse region.

The group aims to become a regionally relevant network to
communicate specific regional issues and challenges of contemporary
art conservation.  Issues include those of climate, culture,
availability of materials for creative and conservation practice,
documentation, fusion creation, traditional and contemporary art
practices, conservation awareness, and education and training
opportunities amongst others.  We aim to encourage the sharing of
knowledge and skills between professionals within the region as
means of mutual assistance and support, as well as to promote
awareness, build relationships and explore similarities in the roles
and working practices of art professionals in the Asia Pacific

We welcome input from individuals from around the region and beyond
to take part in discussions about the care of contemporary art.
