Preserving Modern And Contemporary Museum Collections: The Now On View 
December 4, 2018  
Pennsylvania Academy of the Fine Arts, Philadelphia PA
Caring for modern and contemporary collections is a continually evolving challenge. The 20th and 21st centuries present a vast array of new materials that have left collections staff in uncharted territory as they address unprecedented preservation problems. Museums and other collecting institutions must understand the long-term needs of these items in order to determine appropriate priorities for conservation, storage, exhibition, documentation, and digitization. In presentations and artist/conservator conversations, this conference will explore ways to anticipate, plan for, and address preservation concerns in modern and contemporary collections.
