Conserving Histories of Art

Each of the seminars in Conserving Histories of Art is a conversation about an object or objects: about how and why we care for them, and about the ways in which care changes the stories they tell. The series brings artists, scholars, conservators and curators into this conversation in an effort to move beyond the traditional division between those who study what objects mean and those who study how they age, in the hope that doing so will encourage the recognition of the intelligence embedded in objects and their conservation.
