This month on Art21’s Blog I look for the top ten contemporary conservation projects, but sadly only come up with 9. Link here.
There are projects from many, but not all, of the major U.S. contemporary art museums on the list.
The DeYoung Museum tweeted me a story from their Blog that would have made the list if I would have found it, “Conserving Louis Nevelson’s Ocean Gate”.
If you know of any others, leave them in the comment section of the Art21 article.
Here are some links mentioned in Tricia Gilson and my presentation, Use, Degradation, and Patina: A Case Study of Eames Furniture at the Miller House and Garden, at Future Talks 011, in Munich, Germany.
The presentation was given at Die Neu Sammlung on October 27, 2011. (The RAR pictured above is in the collection of this museum.)
Before this presentation, Tricia and I interviewed Eames expert, Daniel Ostroff, on Art21’s Blog in a two-part series: Following the Eames Legacy, a Discussion with Daniel Ostroff
