26-29 Oct 2010 – ECRO Conference in Mexico

The Escuela de Conservación y Restauración de Occidente (ECRO), the conservation-restoration school of Guadalajara in Mexico, is hosting a conference to celebrate its ten year anniversary.

For many years, KIK-IRPA has collaborated with this school. Amongst other activities, one of our staff visited ECRO to teach a course on preventive conservation, while a Mexican professor came to Brussels for an internship.

To mark this fruitful collaboration, ECRO has invited KIK-IRPA to participate in the conference. Our staff will give lectures on the following topics : the conservation-restoration profession, wooden sculptures and altarpieces, KIK-IRPA's Laboratories Department, preventive conservation and the restoration of easel paintings at KIK-IRPA.
