Lecture "Cleaning & Conductivity: New Treatment Methods"

04:00 pm - 12/08/2016

@ Lunder Conservation Center

Smithsonian American Art Museum and the National Portrait Gallery, 8th and F Streets, NW
Washington DC  20001



This public lecture by Daria Keynan is being given in conjunction with the workshop “Cleaning and Conductivity: New Methods for Treating Paintings, Works on Paper and Textiles” to be held at the Lunder Center December 7-9, 2016.

The lecture aims to give a brief summary of the workshop’s main subjects, by offering an introduction to the subject of pH and conductivity adjusted waters and the use of agarose gels in conservation.

The lecture will introduce the scientific principles involved, how to get the surface measurement needed in order to design the appropriate waters and how to interpret the measurement results. Case studies will be used in order to illustrate how using these materials and adjusting them, to the needs of a work to be treated, can provide a controlled and targeted cleaning system.

The lecture will take place the the MacMillan Education Center at the Smithsonian American Art Museum.
