Posted on Fri, 10/30/2015 - 15:59

INCCA members are dedicated to developing, sharing and preserving knowledge needed for the conservation of modern and contemporary art. INCCA is a network of like-minded professionals connected to the conservation of modern and contemporary art. Conservators, curators, scientists, registrars, archivists, art historians, artists, educators and students are among our members. Since its inception in 1999, the network has grown from 23 to over 2600 members, including independents and students, from over 800 organisations in around 80 countries.

INCCA.org as a Conference

The INCCA website is an interactive digital platform to find as well as share news, events, and resources on the conservation of modern and contemporary art. Users can find projects, (online) publications, links to organisations, and training programmes in the field. The site is unique as it also houses (descriptions of) documents created by INCCA members that are otherwise inaccessible. Most member documents are artist interviews, but you can also find condition reports, installation instructions and technical drawings. Member documents may even be notes taken during 'ad hoc' discussions with artists, such as telephone conversations or dialogues during exhibition installations. Important information can often be obtained from the artist at such impromptu moments. Different members share documents concerning the same artist resulting in a unique 'virtual artist archive'. Over 1600 artists are represented in INCCA, including Marina Abramovic, Joseph Beuys, Tony Cragg, Tracey Emin, Thomas Hirschhorn and more. Learn how to share information on the INCCA website here.
