Concise Conservation
Asian Art Museum. Japan Galleries

Conservation is not a one size fits all practice and can be overwhelming for many smaller institutions to keep in mind when planning their exhibitions.  In this episode, I focus on some of the overarching and predictable elements of conservation that everyone can count on.  From understanding the materials you need to use to predicting all things that “touch” the art, a lot can be worked out in planning without bringing in a conservator.  While it is always a good idea to consult an expert on what you are planning, there are some things that you can rely on while budgeting and scheduling an installation.  I hope that this podcast can help you find the right frame of reference to keep your expectations in line with your capabilities.
