15th Annual Dr Harold Plenderleith Memorial Lecture
"Conservation, Mortality and the Meaning of Life".
Glasgow Royal Concert Hall
29 November 2012
7pm in time for a 7.15 start
Followed by a drinks and sandwiches reception until 10pm

Dr. Mark O'Neill Director of Policy and Research, Glasgow Life will
give the 15th Annual Plenderleith Lecture. This lecture will explore
what the great skill and effort invested in conserving precious
objects tell us about the values of Western culture and in
particular about how we think about the passage of time and
mortality. Our concern for preservation is not universal--other
cultures address similar concerns about the brevity of life by
celebrating the poignancy of transience. Some practical implications
of these reflections for museum conservation will be addressed,
using examples from Glasgow Museums, of which Mark O'Neill was
Director for ten years, during the refurbishment of Kelvingrove Art
Gallery and Museum and the development of the Zaha Hadid-designed
Riverside Museum.

Tickets must be booked and paid for in advance by calling Icon on

Please arrive at the Buchanan Suite in the Royal Concert Hall at
5.45pm for a 6pm start.
