Wednesday, 5 May, 2021 - 19:00

The CAPuS Digital Repository stores, preserves and provides access to a wide range of information and documentation on the contemporary public artworks that were studied within the Conservation of Art in Public Spaces (CAPuS) project. The structure, functionality and content of the online database will be presented through three Zoom events, which will be held on May 5, May 19 and May 26, 2021. Each Zoom event will last around 30 minutes, and will include a live Q&A session.

The first Zoom event will take place on Wednesday May 5, 2021. Dr Sagita Mirjam Sunara (University of Split) and Dr Moira Bertasa (representing the University of Turin and La Venaria Reale Conservation-Restoration Centre) will discuss two artworks from the repository: a sculpture and a mural. They will show what kind of information and documentation has been collected and produced during the CAPuS project, how this data are now shared with the public, and how they can assist heritage professionals in the future to plan and execute conservation treatments of public works of art.

The Zoom event is free and open to all, but registration is required:

Please note that the number of attendees is limited to 100. The meeting will be streamed to the CAPuS Project Facebook page.
