Doing Time/Depth of Surface: Questions of Conservation and Preservation in Contemporary Art Practices
Stewart Auditorium, Moore College of Art & Design
20th and The Parkway, Philadelphia, PA

Join us for a lively discussion around the issues of preservation and conservation as they relate to the artworks that artists Patricia Gómez and María Jesús González created during their residency at the now decommissioned Holmesburg Prison in Northeast Philadelphia.

Preservation is a theme that runs throughout these artworks and perhaps is best exemplified in the prints, which were made using a strappo technique to transfer the top layer of selected prison walls to large sheets of black fabric.

Following a brief guided tour of the exhibition, panelists will discuss how our notion of preservation is both acknowledged and challenged in these artworks.

Panelists: Professor Frank Matero, Professor of Architecture, Historic Preservation, University of Pennsylvania
Gwynne Ryan, Sculpture Conservator, Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden
Professor Jennie Hirsh, Director of the MA in Critical Studies Program and Faculty Member in the Department of Art History, Theory, and Criticism, Maryland Institute College of Art, and contributor to the Doing Time/Depth of Surface exhibition catalog

Co-sponsored by the Philadelphia Area Conservation Association
