ART HANDLING, TRANSPORT AND STORAGE
An Online Course by Node Center



This course offers specially designed training on the handling, storage and transportation of cultural heritage focusing on modern and contemporary artworks (paintings, sculptures and installation works).

Artworks have to be moved, packed, transported, stored and presented properly to guarantee their preservation and safety. Curators, gallery staff, art handlers and technicians are indirect and frequent contact with artworks and therefore need to know the essentials of proper care, maintenance and preservation. Additionally, in an ever-expanding global art world this knowledge is crucial as the loan and transportation of works of art have increased significantly in recent years

This course is useful for anyone in contact with artworks and will provide basic guidelines for handling, packaging, transport and storage of works of art. In addition, art conservator Eva Rieß will enrich these guidelines, methods and techniques through case studies and day-to-day examples.

- Duration: Nov 11 - Dec 2, 2019
- Enroll before: Nov 7, 2019
- Lecturer: Eva Riess
- Participation fee: 154 EUR

*Video conferences every Monday at 7pm CET. Recordings will be available in case you miss a live session!
