European Lacquer in Context
Jubelpark, Brussels, 18–19 January 2018

Proposals due by 4 June 2017

The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels, Belgium), the University of Antwerp (UA, Antwerp, Belgium) and the Royal Museums of Art and History (KMKG-MRAH, Brussels, Belgium) invite you to participate in our two-day conference European Lacquer in Context. The theme of this conference is European lacquers in a broad sense: theoretical and practical work concerning conservation and restoration, art historical, technological and chemical research will be highlighted.

We encourage students, young and established professionals to submit an abstract for either a poster or a paper presentation. Both theory and practice-oriented contributions from professionals working with European lacquers are considered (among others curators, conservators, restorers, art historians, analytical scientists and anyone with an interest in European lacquers). Presentations of collaboration projects between different professions are strongly encouraged.

For more information about the conference, please visit the ELinC-conference website. Please submit the abstract before 4 June 2017 through the conference online abstract form.
