CFP: Conservation of Textiles in Rome


This is more geared toward interiors but if some of you are textile conservationists you might still find it applicable to your work.

International Council of Museums Committee for Conservation
March 23-25, 2010
Due date: Sept. 30, 2009

Categories: Leather and Related Materials, Murals, Stone and Rock Art, Sculpture, Polychromy and Architectural Decoration, Textiles, Wood, Furniture and Lacquer

The call:
Multidisciplinary approach to the conservation of historic interiors will be the subject. Working Groups will gather together to discuss and elucidate problems related to the artistic, historic, environmental, ethical and technical aspects that may arise at the conservation/ restoration of artefacts, which while differing in techniques and materials, form as a whole a unique context of heritage interior.
Contributions should focus on specific projects providing guidelines for preventive conservation and methodology of treatments as well as on theoretical issues, conservation techniques and research with the aim of defining an exhaustive state of the art on this issue.

We invite the submissions of paper/ poster proposals by all conservators, conservation scientists, curators and art historians in the field independent of their ICOM-CC membership status. All submitted paper/ poster proposals will be reviewed by the program committee consisting of the Coordinator and Assistant Coordinators of the individual ICOM-CC WGs. The official language of the conference will be English.
