Proceedings from the interim meeting of the Modern Materials and Contemporary Art Working Group of ICOM-CC, Kröller-Müller Museum, Otterlo, the Netherlands, June 4-5, 2013

Edited by Lydia Beerkens and Tom Learner; 2014


This volume is a collection of seventeen papers presented at the June 2013 symposium held at the Kröller-Müller Museum. The papers include case studies of works from Europe, North America and Asia, and include works by Alexander Calder, Christo, Niki de Saint Phalle, Jean Dubuffet, John Hoskin, Roy Lichtenstein, Claes Oldenburg, Nam June Paik, Shinkichi Tajiri, and Franz West. Also featured are papers on issues facing conservators of outdoor painted sculpture—ethical/philosophical, technical/material, legal, management, and information exchange—and possible responses to those; and technical issues, such as how paints or coatings can be developed or tailored to conservators' or artists' needs. 

This symposium was the interim meeting of the Modern Materials and Contemporary Art working group of ICOM-CC, in collaboration with the Kröller-Müller Museum, the Getty Conservation Institute, and INCCA
