Making and transforming art: changes in artists’ materials and practice
International symposium of the ICOM-CC working group on Art Technological Source Research (ATSR)
The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA) is honoured to host the interim meeting of the ICOM-CC working group on Art Technological Source Research (ATSR) in Brussels on 22-23 November 2012. The colloquium is intended for all scholars who are interested in art technology: conservators, art-historians, scientists, technical art historians and artists.
This conference is the fifth in a successful series of interim meetings of the ATSR working group: following upon symposia in Amsterdam (2004), Madrid (2006), Glasgow (2008) and Vienna (2010).
The aim of the interim meeting is primarily to provide a forum for discussion of art technological source research, exploring artists’s practices as recorded in technical treatises, manuals, correspondence and journals, and also in images such as photographs, films or prints. The focus of this year’s meeting is the transformation of artists’s materials and works of art, as documented in visual and written sources
