This special ICA NEXT MEETS will provide a forum for collectors and artists to come together with one of the nation’s leading conservators of contemporary and modern art. An illustrated presentation will be used to stimulate a discussion about aesthetics, longevity and legacy of artistic concepts. We will entertain questions about care of works and how artists can produce the physical works they envision using the best means and materials available.
