John Marshall and Rhiannon Walker will be discussing how previous damage caused by physical forces has led to the development of innovative and unique custom mounting solutions. Focussing on three large and vulnerable works from the QAGOMA collection, they will share how the workshop team collaborated with conservators to design and fabricate safe and secure mounting systems, allowing these works to be moved, installed and displayed with much less risk of damage.
