Conserving the Control of the Artist

Contemporary artworks are protected by copyright and cared for by conservators, but this doesn’t mean that works are always kept in the state the artist would consider authentic – especially if the works are sold privately. By gaining knowledge of conservation issues, artists can take steps to prevent changes which they would consider to alter the interpretation of the work.

This post refers to coursework done for ARCLG141 (2015-16), one of the core courses of the UCL MA  Principles of Conservation.
As part of their assessed work for this course, students were asked to design and produce a poster communicating specific aspects of conservation. We hope you enjoy our work! Comments are most welcome.
