CENTRE FOR CONTEMPORARY ART CONSERVATION

Conservators care for the artworks in the Gallery's Collection. The Gallery employs specialists in the conservation of paintings, works on paper, sculpture, new media and frames.

The Centre for Contemporary Art Conservation (CCAC) is our research facility where we are able to examine artworks in extraordinary detail.

The CCAC is equipped with a range of analytical tools including microscopes, infra-red video cameras, and spectroscopy and X-ray facilities.

A range of learning opportunities is available through the CCAC including internships and work placements for conservation students, and workshops for practicing conservators.

Gallery conservators are unable to undertake work on privately-owned artworks. For such conservation services please contact The Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material.
