Two-day symposium Building a new discipline: Time Based Media Art Conservation at the Institute of Fine Arts, New York University.
|Start date||21 May 2018|
|End date||22 May 2018|
Time-Based Media (TBM) art conservation has been identified as a priority by many leading professional organizations worldwide due to rapidly growing TBM collections and the urgent need to preserve them. Aiming to solve the ever-increasing challenges of media art conservation, a new generation of media conservators will have to cross the disciplinary boundaries of computer science, material science, media technology, engineering, art history, and conservation.
The two-day symposium will provide a forum for educators, artists, art historians, museum curators and directors, collectors, gallerists, engineers, computer scientists, and conservators to foster time based media art conservation as a discipline on an international level.
The conference aims:
The University of Amsterdam is one of the few places in the world that includes conservation of Time-Based Media Art in the training programme Conservation and Restoration of Cultural Heritage in the specialisation Contemporary Art. Programme leaders Evelyne Snijders, Ellen Jansen and Sanneke Stigter will contribute to the conference with a presentation on Training in Time-Based Arts Conservation at the University of Amsterdam.
