‘Modern and Contemporary Materials: Research, Treatment, and Practice’
Date: 23–25 October 2019
Venue: Christchurch Art Gallery Te Puna o Waiwhetū

The Organising Committee of the NZCCM National Conference 2019 is thrilled to announce that Asti Sherring, Time-Based Art Conservator at the Art Gallery of New South Wales, will be this year’s keynote speaker. Asti is the first Time-Based Art Conservator to be appointed in Australasia. Her work to address the outstanding and key issues of caring for TBA collections has led to the development of new and inspiring ways of working and we are really excited for her to share them with us all.

Over the first two days of the conference there will be a range of speakers from across New Zealand, Australia, and beyond, presenting on modern materials and techniques. They will cover a wide variety of specialisms and there certainly will be something for everyone. Further details of the program will be released in late August. Day 3 will provide the opportunity to participate in several different conservation and heritage related activities in Christchurch and the surrounding area.
