Condition reports are written or digital records that describe the physical condition of an artwork at a given time. They offer documentary evidence of the presence or absence of change over time, which when used in conjunction with photographs, are useful for informing and assessing loan and collection conditions and museum practices.

Join conservators for a one-day workshop at the NGV as we review the purpose of the condition reporting process, look closely at the condition of various collection materials, review options for condition assessment formats and consider simple technical examination techniques and digital technologies to incorporate into practice.

PGAV thanks the NGV for its generous support of Victoria's public gallery sector through the delivery of this workshop.

To be considered for a place, please complete the short Expression of Interest (via the link below) and return to anne.robertson@pgav.ngv.vic.gov.au by 6pm, Friday 21 June 2024.
