Call for Papers

"Polychrome Sculpture: Decorative Practice and Artistic Tradition"
Interim Meeting
ICOM-CC Working Group Sculpture, Polychromy, and Architectural
    Decorations
Hosted by Tomar Polytechnic Institute,
Tomar, Portugal
28-29 May 2013

This two day symposium will focus on artistic tradition within the
field of polychrome sculpture relating to decorative practice. After
two symposiums on construction techniques (Maastricht 2010 and
Glasgow 2012), the main focus will now be on decorative practices,
from painting materials, to varnishes or metal leaf applications,
etc.

The meeting will be hosted by the Polytechnic Institute, Tomar
(Portugal). Tomar is well known for the Convent of the Order of
Christ (12th century),--originally a Templar stronghold--and one of
Portugal's most important historical and artistic monuments,
classified as World Heritage by UNESCO in 1983. The Polytechnic
Institute provides training for conservators in the form of a Master
degree course in Conservation and Restoration.

The organizing committee and the ICOM-CC working group Sculpture,
Polychromy, and Architectural Decoration invites papers and posters
related to decorative practices within the field of polychrome
sculpture and the conservation treatment of these objects. Several
decorative techniques will be addressed such as painting techniques
from different regions, gilding, estofado , use of incised and
punched patterns, varnishes, lacquers, applications, etc.

The meeting will provide a forum for discussion between
conservators, conservation scientists, researchers, educators and
curators to discuss artistic practice within the field of polychrome
sculpture. The symposium aims to bring together international
experts on polychrome decorative practice and to provide an
opportunity for the worldwide conservation community to exchange new
research, experiences and expertise within this field.

Original papers are invited for submission to focus on case studies
and advances in research and treatment of polychrome sculpture.
Authors interested in presenting a paper or poster should submit an
abstract (400 - 600 words) by 31 December, 2012 to
icomccspadtomar2013<-at->gmail<.>com

Work should be original and not have been published previously.
Contributions of work-in-progress are also welcome. Abstracts should
be in English and include the contact information for the author(s)
(affiliation, address, telephone, fax and e-mail). The abstracts
will be reviewed by the Conference Organizing Committee, and authors
will be informed by 31 January 2013. Full papers are to be delivered
by 30 April 2013. It is the intention of the organisers to publish
all accepted papers in English.

Further details regarding this conference will be posted on the home
page of the ICOM-CC Working Group: Sculpture, Polychromy, and
Architectural Decoration.
