Artlab conservators prepare artworks and heritage items for exhibition and loan, including preparing them for travel to venues interstate and overseas.

This includes risk assessments of display spaces for objects, possible conservation treatment, mount or display case design and the preparation of condition reports, condition photography and specialised packing to mitigate risks.

Conservators are also available to courier artworks to venues. Involving our conservators in the planning stages of an exhibition or loan will minimise the risks associated with the travel and display of cultural material.
