The Gerry Hedley Student Symposium: Conservation of Fine Art

The annual student symposium between Courtauld Institute of Art, Hamilton Kerr Institute-Cambridge University and Northumbria University Conservation of Fine Art Programme began over 30 years ago.

Each institution takes turns in hosting this event and June 2022 marks Northumbria’s turn. This annual one-day symposium is named after its founder, Gerry Hedley, who was a Reader at The Courtauld Institute of Art and a leader of pioneering research in conservation, inspiring generations of students. It is an opportunity for students and interns training in conservation of paintings at The Courtauld Institute of Art, Hamilton Kerr Institute (Cambridge) and University of Northumbria to present their work to other trainees and conservation professionals.

Speakers will present on a range of topics featuring individual treatments, technical study and scientific analysis. Presentations will feature case studies of artworks from world-class collections with in-depth technical and scientific investigations. The symposium provides the opportunity to explore the conservation challenges posed by both traditional historical materials and modern materials, in paintings from early medieval times to the present day.
