It's About Time! Building a New Discipline: Time-Based Media Conservation Symposium

Monday, 21 May, 2018 to Tuesday, 22 May, 2018
New York City

Institute of Fine Arts, New York University

Time-Based Media (TBM) art conservation has been identified as a priority by many leading professional organizations worldwide due to rapidly growing TBM collections and the urgent need to preserve them. Aiming to solve the ever-increasing challenges of media art conservation, a new generation of media conservators will have to cross the disciplinary boundaries of computer science, material science, media technology, engineering, art history, and conservation. This symposium is promoting education and training opportunities for TBM as a new specialization within art conservation and will provide a forum for educators, artists, art historians, museum curators and directors, collectors, gallerists, engineers, computer scientists, and conservators to foster TBM art conservation as a discipline on an international level.
