Momart is pleased to be partnering with the Art Business Conference and warmly invites all delegates to join our discussion on the real costs of art packing and conservation.

In recent years we have observed an on-going trend in the commercial art market towards using standardised, non-tailored art packaging to protect and prepare artworks for transit. What may seem in the first instance as a perfectly appropriate, cost-saving solution, frequently leads to significant artwork damage and in consequence high conservation costs, not to mention the potential decrease in the artwork’s value, insurance claims and reputational losses to the parties involved.

Picking up the Pieces: The Real Costs of Artwork Packing and Conservation

This session will explore how conservation and packing specialists collaborate to mitigate artwork damage risks. Using real-life examples and cost analysis, our speakers, Joanna Shepard from Joanna Shepard Conservation and Mark Harton from Momart, will give practical advice on how to properly prepare artworks for transit or storage and present a range of solutions tailored to different budget needs.
