Come and learn about artwork conservation, sustainable collections, and Argyll’s internationally significant collection of African Modern Art. 

In March 2023, Argyll’s African artworks will be examined by a professional conservator. Following these examinations, we invite you to join us here at Dunoon Burgh Hall on Saturday, March 4 2023 for an Art Conservation Open Day, between 10am-4pm.

There will be talks, Q&As and demonstrations from three guest experts:

11am: Christina Young, Professor of Technical Art History and Conservation at University of Glasgow will discuss what technical art history is and what it might teach us about Argyll’s African artworks.

1pm: Nancy Dantas, Art Historian and C-MAP Africa Fellow at the Museum of Modern Art (New York) will introduce MoMA’s C-MAP Africa project and current research on African modern art.


The Art Conservation Open Day is free and open to the public.
