Join IIC and INCCA members from around the world as we collaborate to explore the conservation of contemporary culture. Conservation of contemporary works of art presents a range of practical, theoretical and, indeed, philosophical challenges - it’s always new, always different, always stimulating. Those working in the conservation profession must approach these artworks in a different way, perhaps from the point of view of mechanical engineers or anthropologists or manufacturers of plastics, or …

Come and see what we have to show you, hear what your colleagues have to say!

Congress Highlights

Technical Programme: Four-and-a-half days of paper presentations examining the Congress theme.

Friday It’s a party and we want you there! We’ll also share a surprise at this year’s Farewell Reception at the Millennium Biltmore Hotel.

Tours

IIC has designed tours that will take you from touring murals representing 87 years of LA’s strong tradition of public art to peering through microscopes at the Getty Conservation Institute; from visiting the fabricator’s studio where Jeff Koons’s Balloon Dog was made to seeing a work by Koons in situ, and enjoying an exclusive visit to LA’s newest museum of contemporary art that will not yet have opened to the public!
