IIC is delighted to present the 26th biennial IIC Congress and to be in Los Angeles, organised in collaboration with the International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (INCCA) and the Getty Conservation Institute. Blessed with an energetic contemporary arts scene, it is entirely appropriate that Los Angeles is the location for the 2016 IIC Congress, on this diverse, complex, challenging and endlessly exciting area of creativity, energy and imagination. Reflecting one aspect of the rich and varied history of the city’s architectural styles, the congress will be held at the historic Millennium Biltmore Hotel, situated in the centre of the vibrant cultural district.

Outline format
• Technical programme: 12th to 16th September ( Monday to Friday)
• Tours in and around Los Angeles: 15th September (Thursday afternoon)

An exciting programme of social events is planned including two evening receptions in downtown Los Angeles and a spectacular Grand Event on Wednesday evening at the cutting-edge and world famous Los Angeles County Museum of Art (LACMA).

There will be a poster display, including the very popular student poster section, and a trade fair with leading suppliers and service providers in the field. Read all about it here!
