    The Object in Transition: A Cross Disciplinary Conference on the
    Preservation and Study of Modern and Contemporary Art
    January 25-26, 2008
    Getty Center, Los Angeles

Presented by the Getty Conservation Institute and the Getty Research
Institute, "The Object in Transition: A Cross Disciplinary
Conference on the Preservation and Study of Modern and Contemporary
Art", will explore some of the key issues surrounding the
conservation of contemporary sculpture, painting, and mixed-media
artworks, and the collaborative possibilities, primarily between
conservators, art historians, and curators, working in these fields.

The two-day event will feature intensive professional dialogues on
case studies and general panel discussions. Topics will include the
importance of an artwork's surface, dealing with process, the
artist's and intent, the life and death of objects, and examining
multi-disciplinary collaboration. A number of relevant art works are
anticipated to be on display, enabling the audience to actively
participate in the discussion of these works.

In addition, a panel discussion, open to the public, with three
influential contemporary artists (to be announced) in conversation
with Christian Scheidemann (Private Conservator in NY) and Elisabeth
Sussman (curator at the Whitney Museum of Art) will be held on
Thursday evening, January 24, 2008 in the Harold M. Williams
Auditorium at the Getty Center.
