Event Details

Departing from Modernism, art after the 1960s has experienced drastic changes in its manifestations. Contemporary artists have adopted performance, industrial objects and readymade as well as time-based media to convey their visions, which resulted in works with great complexity–both in conception and materiality. The transforming idea of authenticity has deeply challenged traditional museum practices from acquisition, curation to conservation. In this symposium, we will present case studies from contemporary art centers, artist archives and estates, advocacy groups, university gallery spaces and independent art studios. Together, we aim to explore the limitations and workarounds to tackle the ephemeral nature of contemporary works, constant setbacks by technological obsolescence, degradation issues of unconventional materials within the broader context of contemporary cultural heritage. With built-in linguistic and translation support, we wish to create a venue for our participants to openly discuss how resources, training, guiding principles, and documentation methods can best be shared within the preservation community. It will lay the groundwork for the next stage of the project following the symposium–the formation of a robust regional knowledge-based network for contemporary and time-based media art conservation in Asia.
