18th Conservator-Restorers’ Professional Meeting

in the National Gallery of Slovenia

Professional Meeting and Poster Exhibition

On 15 May 2018, the National Gallery of Slovenia is hosting the 18th Conservator-Restorers’ Professional Meeting, where participants from Slovenia and the wider region will present their work through posters, short videos and lectures. The event is organised together with the Slovenian Museums Association and the Slovenian Restorers Association. The lectures and presentations start at 10am and aim at expert public.

Wider public will be able to learn more about past and ongoing projects at the exhibition of posters that will run 15–22 May 2018 and will be open every day except Monday, from 10am to 6pm, on Thursday until 8pm. Admission to this exhibition is free. You are kindly invited!

The exhibition will feature many projects, among them the work on The Fowler and Man with a Pretzel by Fortunat Bergant and the work of Croatian colleagues on a large-scale (447 x 795 cm) painting The Meeting of Pope Leon the Great with Attila.  Among archaeological challenges, the interventions on iron material stand out, since the artefacts were originally renovated by private collectors using methods completely at odds with museum standards. Wall painting interventions include an interesting report on the church in Vrzdenec and the challenges of presenting past interventions in medieval wall paintings. Also incredibly difficult was the intervention on the stuccowork by Czech sculptor Vaclav Mach on the façade of the arts and crafts school on Aškerc Street in Ljubljana.
