    Agnieszka Wielocha graduates from the Academy of Fine Arts in Warsaw, Faculty of Conservation and Restoration of Art. She is specialized in conservation and restoration of painting and polychromed sculpture, although her Master’s thesis concerned conservation and restoration of modern and contemporary art (‘Conservation and restoration of Voyage – a polyester sculpture by Alina Szapocznikow from the collection of Muzeum Sztuki in Łódź’). During her studies, she participated in the Erasmus exchange program at the University Complutense, Madrid. After graduating she completed an internship in the conservation department of the National Museum Art Center Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain.

    Between 2006 and 2015 Agnieszka was working as a conservator and project manager. She was responsible for coordination and documentation of complex conservation projects. During that time, she has collaborated with various museums and institutions, The Malbork Castle Museum, The Royal Łazienki Museum, Museum of Warsaw and POLIN Museum of the History of Polish Jews among others. Between 2012 and 2015 she worked as a conservator at the Museum of Modern Art in Warsaw. She is currently pursuing a doctoral degree at the University of Amsterdam, Amsterdam School for Heritage, Memory and Material Culture within the research program ‘New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art’ (NACCA), a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network funded by the European Union. Her research interests include issues relating to artists’ involvement  in conservation of contemporary artworks.
