The spring CAN! Conversation is dedicated to the discussion of conservation approaches within artists' estates and foundations. The panel discussion and open Q&A will deal with a range of questions from the perspectives of a foundation, a consulting firm that helps set-up estates and foundations, and a conservator with extensive experience dealing with these different stakeholders. Topics will cover the thorny issues of long-term preservation, use, archives, and care. How do artist estates, foundations and archives create preservation guidelines for conservators? How do they approach conservation inquiries? How do they respond to disparate conservation treatments across different institutions and collections? How do estates and foundations function differently in their interaction with preservation goals?
