The People’s Ground

July 22, 2016

Detailed Program Announced | Early Bird Discount Extended

The National Trusts of Australia and Australia ICOMOS joint conference will be held on 5-8 October 2016 at the Melbourne Cricket Ground (MCG).

At the 2015 ICOMOS Fabric Conference in Adelaide, delegates were challenged to re-evaluate the role of the heritage expert. In 2016 we want to build on these ideas, and the relationships between people, place and practice, theoretically and experientially.

The Melbourne Cricket Ground – popularly “The People’s Ground” – is the inspiration for this conference. This acknowledges that heritage is for and about people and community. Whilst place is central to conceptions of heritage, is it not intangible values – stories, memories, connections, emotions – that reveal and sustain our heritage?

We are pleased to announce the detailed program for The People’s Ground, including an exciting range of papers, panels, workshops, social functions and satellite events. CLICK HERE to download a copy of the program. And to celebrate the launch of the program, we are extending Early Bird Registrations! You now have until Monday 8 August to register and receive a generous Early Bird discount.

For any enquiries, please email the Conference Secretariat bradleyccem.com.au

Heritages of Migration: Moving Objects, Stories and Home

The early colonization of the Americas represented the layering of cultures and new inscriptions of place. Today we see conceptions of the stability of ‘old world’ that have been challenged by centuries of two-way flows of people and objects, each engendering new meanings, allowing for new interpretations of landscape, the production of identities and generating millions of stories. The emergence of the ‘new world’ in opposition to the old – in real, imaginary and symbolic terms – problematizes sense of place and induces consideration of a ‘placelessness’ as a location for ideas of home, memory and belonging. This conference looks at the actors and processes that produce and reconfigure the old world in the new, and the new world in the old across the Atlantic – north and south – through constructions of heritage in material and immaterial form. Its focus is upon the widely conceived Trans-Atlantic but we also welcome contributions that focus on the heritages of migration from around the world.

Light | Colour | Structure – The 9th AICCM Book, Paper and Photograph Materials Symposium

Conference

fromdu 10 October 2016 toau 12 October 2016

Organized by:Organisé par :
AICCM – The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material, Australia

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Canberra , Australia

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description :

Light | Colour | Structure – The 9th AICCM Book, Paper and Photograph Materials Symposium will be held in Canberra at the National Gallery of Australia from 10th–12th October 2016. Accompanying workshops will be held in various Canberra locations from 13th–15th October 2016.

The elements of light, colour and structure are intrinsic to the physical composition of historical and contemporary art, documents and photographs. These elements are also the key factors which influence how objects are seen and displayed and ultimately impact on their longevity. The AICCM Book and Paper SIG, PHOTON and the Conservation Framing SIG invite the submission of abstracts (maximum 300 words) on all subjects relevant to this theme and to the history, materials, techniques and conservation of books, paper, photographs and associated materials.

We are pleased to announce that registrations for the Symposium’s Workshop program are now OPEN!

Please follow this link where you can register for the Symposium’s Workshops and pay online through the National Gallery of Australia’s website. The workshops are listed below – a full description of each is available at the link given.

Also please remember that early bird member registration to the Symposium Presentations finishes on 29 August. After that, the fee goes up by $100. Registration for the Symposium is via the AICCM website here

We look forward to seeing lots of you in Canberra in October!

Decomposition of organic residues on museum objects: evaluation of current preventive conservation measures

July 20, 2016

Survey

Giovanna Macelletti, University of Northumbria – United Kingdom

More info:Plus d’infos : URL

Description
I am a postgraduate student at the university of Northumbria in Newcastle(UK). I am currently studying to complete an MA in Preventive Conservation and, as part of my final dissertation, I am doing a research on conservation measures adopted for the preservation of organic residues found on museum objects.
By organic residues, I refer to remains of food, fats or oils, etc. that form part of the history of the object and for this reason they should remain with it.
Among all the possible organic residues recovered on archaeological objects, fats are probably the most problematic ones in terms of reactivity with chemical components of the materials of the object and especially with the surrounding environment.

The aim of my research is the understanding of the effects that deterioration of, still reactive, organic residues can have on materials and how the two can be kept together, without the risk of a negative impact on the physical and aesthetic integrity of the object.
I would really appreciate it if you could spare 5-10 minutes to fill in this questionnaire:

Please, return it by 31th of July.

Your contribution will be extremely valuable for my research project.

Many thanks,
Giovanna Macelletti


Book conservation skills for paper conservators

July 19, 2016

Workshop

fromdu 20 September 2016 toau 21 September 2016

Organized by:Organisé par :

Location of event:Lieu de l’événement : Edinburgh, United Kingdom

Icon Scotland Group
159 Causewayside
Edinburgh
20-21 September 2016

Icon Scotland Group is hosting a two-day theory and practical workshop from 20-21 September 2016 at the National Library of Scotland. The workshop is run by Icon-accredited book conservator, Caroline Scharfenberg.

The boundaries between book and paper conservation are clearly fluid; book conservators can benefit from specialist paper conservation knowledge while paper conservators often need to know more about bound material when working with mixed collections. This workshop helps paper conservators gain a basic knowledge about book structures and the typical damage found in book collections. These skills will enable paper conservators to stabilise book collections and to better assess damage and the required repair. Additionally it will help paper conservators to define the boundaries of their own knowledge about bound material and know when best to bring in a professional accredited book conservator. Places are limited, fees are UKP150 to icon Members, UKP175 to non-Members. For enquiries contact the event team at eventsisg<-at->gmail<.>com.

Bookings and payments are through Eventbrite:

This course emphasizes a practical approach to coatings examination, from overall inspection techniques to spot analysis:

It covers observation with visible and ultraviolet light, solubility tests, examination of cross-sections, microchemical tests as well as histochemical staining methods. Useful tips are provided for the use of specific equipment and facilities. Health and safety issues are also addressed.

In addition, the course conveys fundamental information about the primary materials used in different types of coatings, their chemical and physical properties, as well as factors influencing deterioration and surface phenomena.

With the help of detailed explanation of the basic information, it is also possible to learners with little previous knowledge to get into the subject.

During the term of the course, a graduated conservator is available to all participants via e-mail.

Students of the Faculty of Architecture, Engineering and Conservation can get credit points for the course.
