This two day event will address one of the most pertinent issues in modern collections care: How to assess and manage colour change in light sensitive objects. At the Nationalmuseum, this issue is exceptionally pressing, due to the upcoming renovation, the reintroduction of daylight, and the need to install new energy saving light sources.
The event will focus on three main areas: accelerated fading techniques (microfading and spectrophotometry) anoxic framing and solid state lighting (SSL).The event will include workshop demonstrations of microfading technology. The event will also address how to manage the risk of light induced colour change whilst increasing access to collections.
This conference will be of interest to anyone who works with light sensitive collections;
however, it is primarily aimed at conservators and conservation managers. The focus will be the practical application and use of these techniques for conservators who do not work with an in-house conservation science team. The event will be held in English.
