Conservation Through Transformation: Keeping performance art alive in the museum::Live Session 1

Attend
Overview

Monday, June 7 and Friday, June 11 at 12-2pm Eastern Time
Instructors: Louise Lawson, Helia Marcal

This workshop will draw on the practice of conservation developed at Tate to explore the material possibilities afforded by the care of performance art. Instructors will focus on their documentation processes to reflect on how the situatedness of the museum frames the documentation that is produced and the purposes of said documents. Participants will participate in exercises of re-situating practices, where forms of data collection and analysis will be framed through case-studies and discussion, using key tools developed, as well as how to adapt these tools and develop bespoke strategies for their own institutions.

Documenting performance art seems to be a conundrum that is particularly hard to resolve. Tate started to collect this form of artistic practice in 2005 and has since acquired over 25 performance artworks that range from simple instruction-based works to performances that depend on bodily and material engagements that are hard to understand and even harder to capture. With the aim of safeguarding a whole collection to generations to come, the museum’s structure is keen to create categories and other processes of standardization. However, performance art often challenges those standards and categories. What are the affordances of the museum to the documentation of performance art? And how can we re-situate museum practices to accommodate non-conforming bodies of practice?  This workshop will provide participants with an understanding of the challenges that performance art poses to conservation professionals and recognize how performance art plays with notions of care, authenticity, sameness, and transformation.

Partner Event: Getty Conservation Institute Virtual Lounge - Scientific Instrumentation (Pre-Registration Required)

Attend
Overview

To access this program, you must receive a confirmation email from the Getty Conservation Institute and use that link to access the session. You won’t be able to access the session through this meeting portal.

How have recent advances in scientific technologies impacted your work?  Are you able to look at things in new ways and uncover new types of information?  Are you overwhelmed with data?  The development of portable and seemingly easy to operate instruments (e.g., handheld XRF spectrometers, new imaging technologies) has led to a rise in the amount of scientific analysis being done for technical studies and conservation treatments.  As technology is poised to play an ever-expanding role in our work – from gathering data, to new algorithms for extracting information, to new methods of communication (think virtual!) - and offer many benefits, we need to make sure we are using them wisely, utilizing the right tool(s) to answer the right questions, and balancing the role technology plays in how we approach understanding, conserving and describing cultural heritage with other approaches.  Join Karen and Lynn for a conversation about how advances in scientific instrumentation, and XRF spectrometers in particular, are transforming how scientists, conservators and curators work together.  

What is the Virtual Lounge?

Join a Getty Conservation Institute host for a coffee break or happy hour (depending on your time zone) in the Virtual Lounge, every Wednesday during the conference for an informal conversation focused on a different theme.  There will be a limited number of participants so that everyone will have a chance to engage in a relaxed environment and meet some new colleagues.
