AIC's 41st Annual Meeting will take place in Indianapolis, May 29- June 1, 2013, at the JW Marriott.
The theme of the meeting will be The Contemporary in Conservation, focusing on contemporary approaches to conservation, not only the conservation of contemporary art, and will include perspectives from within as well as outside the field.
In addition to the treatment of contemporary art, the conference will consider topics including: current issues in conservation and preservation, such as digitization, environmental sustainability or the effects of architectural design on the preservation of objects; current trends in exhibition design and the new challenges they present for preservation including greater physical access, longer display times and more touring exhibitions. In addition to conservators, we welcome participation from related professionals.
