Preservation and Presentation of Installation Art
was a three-year research project (2004 - 2007) into the care and administration of an art form that is challenging prevailing views of conservation.
Thirty-three complex installations (many multimedia) were re-installed, investigated and documented (see 33 case studies).
By sharing their experience project participants worked together to develop guidelines, models & tools within five research themes: preservation, artist participation, documentation, theory & semantics, and knowledge management & information exchange (see research themes).
Over the three-year period 6 events (seminar/workshops) were organised and a considerable amount of knowledge was captured and can now be shared via the project website (see events).
