The Getty Conservation Institute (GCI) and Getty Research Institute (GRI)
are pleased to announce that the video recording of "The Object in
Transition" conference is now available to view on-line at:

"The Object in Transition: A Cross-Disciplinary conference on the
Preservation and Study of Modern and Contemporary Art", was held in the
Harold M. Williams Auditorium at the Getty Center from January 25-26, 2008.
A close collaboration between the GCI and the GRI, the conference brought
together conservators, curators, art historians, artists and conservation
scientists to discuss interdisciplinary case studies on the conservation of
some of the varied-and frequently untraditional-materials used by artists
over the last seventy years.

The conference was comprised of a series of case studies to debate the
conservation issues presented by specific works of art, dialogues between
conservators and art historians on the interdisciplinary study of certain
artists, and a number of more general panel discussions. The works chosen
for study included Piet Mondrian's Victory Boogie Woogie, Roy Lichtenstein's
Three Brushstrokes, Sol Lewitt's 49 Three-Part Variations on Three Different
Kinds of Cubes, James Turrell's Trace Elements: Light into Space, David
Novros's 6:30 and VI:XXXII, and Eva Hesse's Expanded Expansion.
Interdisciplinary studies were presented
on (Bruce) "Nauman's Edge" and "Encountering (Barnett)
Newman", and panels on "The Painted Surface", "Artist's Voice:
History's Claim", and the "Life and Death of Objects" allowed
for significant discourse on topics brought up in the conference.

In addition, a panel discussion "The Object in Transition:
Contemporary Voices", was held on the evening of January 24. This too is
available to view online at
Organized as part of the Conservation Matters series of public lectures, the
event was a sell-out, and attended by 500 people. Elisabeth Sussman from the
Whitney Museum of American Art served as moderator for a discussion between
artists Rachel Harrison, Paul McCarthy, and Doris Salcedo, and conservator
Christian Scheidemann, in which they described the often complex production
processes of their art, the fleeting nature of some of the materials they
use, and the implications for the long
term survival of their work.
