THE COLLECTION MONITORING PROJECT
The Fondazione Arte CRT is proud to announce the start of activities to monitor the state of conservation of the works in its collection.
February will see the launch of a new project to monitor the state of conservation of artworks in the Collection of the Fondazione per l’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea CRT. The aim of the project is to plan a periodic monitoring of the works in order to verify the state of conservation of the collection, which is on loan to the GAM – Galleria Civica d’Arte Moderna e Contemporanea di Torino and the Castello di Rivoli – Museo d’Arte Contemporanea.
The collection currently comprises over 900 works, part of which are on public display and the rest are kept in the storerooms of the two museums.
The monitoring will be carried out by Studio Lucchini & Sanna Restauri and will focus on aspects such as the historical-artistic importance of the work, its commercial value, the execution technique and the use of materials that make it more susceptible to deterioration, as well as, for works not on display, the time that has elapsed since the last conservation status check.
The operational phase, which will last about a year, will see conservators working both in the storerooms and in the exhibition halls, and will involve many people within the two museums, such as registrars, archivists, curators and staff responsible for handling the works.
