Art Conservation Lectures at the Sakıp Sabancı Museum

Join us for lectures outlining the latest research into the conservation on paintings and contemporary art. These lectures are open to all art conservation professionals and interested members of the public, and are presented by visiting international experts in the field. Dr. Ashok Roy, Director of Collections, National Gallery, London will present a lecture on the growing role of scientific examination of works of art in helping to establish the origin, history and authorship of questionable or disputed paintings, and those which have sometimes puzzled art-historians. Dr. Tom Learner, Head of Science at the Getty Conservation Institute, will present a lecture on the many challenges of conserving modern and contemporary art, which is often created with new and unorthodox mediums.
