25th Contemporary Art Conservation Conference, 2024

The 25th Contemporary Art Conservation Conference, organised by the Museo Reina Sofía’s Department of Conservation-Restoration, with the sponsorship of the MAPFRE Foundation, will be held on 7 and 8 March 2024. This international encounter sets out to share and debate experience and research, open new channels of study and reflect on conservation and the professional practice of restorers.

This latest edition will take place with a combination of in-person and virtual participation and features twenty-minute interventions, followed by five-minute Q&As.

Submitting proposals

The deadline for presenting proposals ends on 15 October 2023. Those interested must send an email to jornada.conservacion@museoreinasofia.es, submitting the following documents:

  • An unpublished proposal related to the conservation or restoration of contemporary art.
  • A 1,700-word summary, written in Word, on the theme addressed. Please indicate the topic at the top of the document with five keywords and the presentation format (in-person or virtual).
  • CV and contact details.

Proposals may be submitted in Spanish and English and will be evaluated by a Scientific Committee, which will select the submissions to be presented during these conferences and will determine their possible participation in a subsequent publication, the inclusion of which will undergo a second and definitive evaluation by the Editorial Committee.

For submissions in a virtual format, participants must send a recording following certain technical requirements they will receive once participation is confirmed.

The conference programme will be published in the coming days.
