Contemporary Art : Who Cares?

Contemporary Art : Who Cares ? colloque organisé par l’INCCA à Amsterdam, 9-11 juin 2010

Douze ans après le premier colloque organisé en 1999 sous l’intitulé Modern art: who cares ?, l’INCCA (International network for the conservation of contemporary art) a rassemblé à nouveau les professionnel de la conservation et de la restauration œuvrant dans le domaine de l’art contemporain.L’INCCA est l’un des premiers réseaux apparus sur ce sujet et sans doute l’un des plus fédérateurs. Sur le principe, l’INCCA n’est pas focalisé sur un aspect particulier et tous les problèmes conservatoires relatifs aux œuvres contemporaines ont droit de cité. En pratique, certains sujets sont récurrents. Au début des années 2000, l’accent était ainsi fortement mis sur la documentation des installations et l’intentionnalité de l’artiste. Dix ans plus tard, l’approche semble plus technique : les matériaux synthétique et les phénomènes d’obsolescence sont au premier rang des préoccupations. A ce jour, ces deux sujets suscitent encore un grand nombre d’interrogations et de perplexités…

Le public (intervenants et auditoire)  était essentiellement constitué de restaurateurs, responsables de collections et physico-chimistes. Peu de français étaient présents au regard de la forte mobilisation des néerlandais, belges, suisses, allemands, anglais, nord-américains et, dans une moindre mesure, italiens ou espagnols.

Le Groupe art contemporain du Département recherche du C2RMF a présenté un poster sur la numérisation des films argentiques qui sera reproduit dans la compilation éditée à l’issue du colloque : Boust Clotilde, Dubail Matthieu, Dazord Cécile, « Contemporary art and technological obsolescence : Film digitization and color rendering in avant-garde and experimental cinema ».

Research and practices in contemporary art conservation

International symposium for (up-and-coming) professionals, from diverse disciplines, who are connected to the conservation of modern and contemporary art. Organised by the Netherlands Institute for Cultural Heritage (ICN), Foundation for the Conservation of Contemporary Art in the Netherlands (SBMK) and the University of Amsterdam (UvA).

Background – Modern Art: Who Cares? 1997

The 1997 symposium Modern Art: Who Cares? (MA:WC?) was one of the first international symposia to deal specifically with the problems of the conservation and restoration of modern art. The event was the culmination of a Dutch research project The Conservation of Modern Art (1995-97) and was meant to identify problems and to investigate possible solutions to these problems in order to develop methodology. Two years later in 1999, the results of the original research project as well as post-prints of the symposium were published in the book Modern Art: Who Cares? which is still considered a milestone for the profession. In addition, a direct result of discussions during MA: WC? was the formation of the International Network for the Conservation of Contemporary Art (INCCA).

Contemporary Art: Who Cares? 2010

The overall theme of the 2010 symposium Contemporary Art: Who Cares? (CA:WC?) is the current standard in care and conservation of modern and contemporarnetworky art. More that ten years after the first proposals for a methodological approach for this new domain of conservation, a new profession has emerged with its own set of specialist areas, its own research projects and its own training programmes. International collaborations, where shared research is the norm, have resulted in the development of good practice (methodological approaches, instruments, conservation techniques) as well as new training programmes and spin-off research projects on a national level.

At CA:WC? participants will share, learn from and discuss the outcomes of recent research projects in contemporary art, with special attention to installation art. Following in the footsteps of Modern Art: Who Cares? much of the programme is based upon a previous research project; this time the European project Inside Installations (2004-2007). Through open discussion, interactive learning and networking sessions, participants will be contributing to the development of this profession.

CREATE conference

CREATE conference Gjøvik 2010
Colour in art, science, design, conservation, research, printmaking, digital technologies, textiles.


Where : Gjøvik University College, Gjøvik, Norway
When : 8th-11th June 2010

Thank you!
For making the CREATE 2010 conference such a successful end to the current CREATE project!

The organisers at the Gjøvik University College did a fantastic job in planning a lively and inspiring programme of conference and social events. With a welcome to Gjøvik from the Major in the Gjøvik Olympic stadium (the ‘largest manmade cavern fit for public use’) the week was off to a winning start!

As the last in the current programme of CREATE events, it was great to see such a mixture of familiar and unfamiliar faces – a testament to the scope this network has to continue to grow. We’ve had some great feedback from you about the positive impactCREATE has had on your research career, such as…

‘It was an extremely eye opening experience and I was excited and more than a little relieved to find so many people that were engaged in diverse and exciting colour research. It is testament to the range of participants that I made so many connections many of which with people that I would never have contemplated approaching under other circumstances. I was amazed at the extent to which people were able to find meaningful common interest despite coming from such a range of disciplines, quite inspiring!’

It was great to hear about the research projects you are currently working on with those you have met at CREATE events, and those you hope to start in the future. And how your exposure to research in other fields has inspired and changed your approach in your own chosen field. As always, please let us know of your activities.

So, the most important question for us now is – what next?! (Answers on a postcard please!)

We will add notes from the last discussion session ‘CREATE – past, present and future’ here soon, and will be working to update the website and it’s structure to offer you a useful tool for communication, information sharing and networking, that can sustain the network you have developed, for the foreseeable future. Again, any suggestions on how best we can do this would be gratefully received.

And more importantly, we hope to be back with a new project in the not too distant future – in the form of re-CREATE! So keep an eye on the website, and keep in touch!

Photos, papers and more from the conference are coming to the archive section soon…

With best wishes,
Carinna, Alison & all at CREATE

AMIA session, The Reel Thing – april 2010

Film Biennale 2010: Amsterdam
EYE Film Institute Netherlands (formerly the Filmmuseum) presents the Film Biënnale, featuring unique film events at special venues throughout Amsterdam from 7 to 11 April. The Film Biënnale showcases film productions which blur the boundaries between different artistic disciplines, merging music, art, theatre and poetry.

On April 7th, AMIA will present a half day session at the Biennale. The AMIA session will be followed by a half day of The Reel Thing.

Wednesday April 7, 2010
9:30 – 12:30 – AMIA seminar
13:30 – 17:00 – The Reel Thing

The AMIA session at the Biennale will explore online access to Audiovisual Archives. Traditionally film archives are responsible for providing access to archival audio-visual content. But access to on-line AV archives today is provided by a much wider variety of agents: from individuals to communities, from film festivals to academic programs. During this half day seminar a selected number of recent projects will be presented focusing on the who is providing access to audio-visual archives, why they are doing it and for whom.

Following the AMIA session, The Reel Thing will present a half day techical symposium. Dedicated to presenting the lastest technologies in audiovisual restoration and preservation. The Reel Thing brings together a unique lineup of laboratory technicians and specialists.
