We are very pleased to announce and invite you to join the CRYSTINART Symposium ‘Crystallization Damage at the Interfaces of Artworks’ which will be held on Thursday 1st of February 2024 from 13.00 to 17.30 hrs CET, in the Ateliergebouw in Amsterdam.
In the last years, the aim of the CRYSTINART project was to develop an integrated approach for understanding, modelling and analyzing the decay mechanisms of layered artworks due to salt crystallization. The CRYSTINART project was financed by the Joint Programming Initiative on Cultural Heritage and Global Change (JPICH), the Netherlands Organization for Scientific Research (NWO) and the Netherlands Institute for Conservation Art and Science (NICAS).
NICAS will host a full afternoon of lectures and discussions in this interdisciplinary topic by inviting different experts and by gathering scientists, conservation scientists, museum conservators and art historians.
Please mark your calendar and save the date. The full programme will be announced later.
