Masterpiece Symposium - Kaleidoscopic Conversations
Wednesday 16 & Thursday 17 June 2021
Masterpiece is delighted to host a programme of digital debate and discussion co-organised by the Fair and Thomas Marks, editor of Apollo, to bring together pre-eminent museum curators and conservators with leading figures in the art and antiques trade, with the aim of encouraging constructive discussion, networking and the exchange of knowledge and practical advice.
‘Kaleidoscopic Conversations’ is the fifth in a series of events that Masterpiece launched in 2018 – and which in the past 12 months have fully embraced the possibilities of digital discussion, with recent online events focusing on conservation and artistic materials. This June the spotlight is on the history of colour, and particularly how the colours and pigments of artistic materials – and how those have been harnessed in works of art – have borne specific meanings in different times and cultures.
