Artist Talk: Elisabeth Reissner


Artist Talk: 06/11/18  –  42 Copperfield Rd. E3 4RR

The Conservator’s Role in Museums and Galleries:

Addressed in this lecture will be the idea that artworks possess multiple identities over time.

Giving practical examples Elisabeth will introduce the range of ways that conservators research, conserve and present artworks. Technical examination can provide clues about an artwork’s material history – both how it was made and how it may have altered over time. Such information can help in conservation decision making, but it won’t alter the fact that an artwork has multiple identities, and that returning to the ‘original work’ or halting for ever material change is neither possible, nor perhaps even desirable


Elisabeth Reissner has an MA in Drawing (Camberwell), a Postgraduate Diploma in the Conservation of Easel paintings and a PhD in Art History (Technical Study Within Art Historical Scholarship: ‘Meaning in Making’ With Particular Reference to the Works of Paul Cézanne at The Courtauld Institute of Art). She has combined work as a paintings’ conservator in galleries and museums such as the Frans Halsmuseum and Tate, with teaching on conservation, curating and art history undergraduate and post graduate courses at UCL and the Courtauld Institute of Art. Her own practice gets a look in every now and again.
