Presented by Roberto Padoan, Principal Conservator Paper & Books, Artlab Australia.
Can this object go in an exhibition? For how long? Has this exhibition caused a damage to the object? How can I asses in a quantitative way the risk of a damage that has already occurred or that might occur in the future? This presentation aims to offer a possible path to answer these questions. A report on some practical experiences in the use of quantitative hyperspectral imaging for the monitoring of ageing process in works of art on paper and archival material during exhibitions.
