Call for Papers: European Lacquer in Context (ELinC) Conference

18-19 January 2018
Jubelpark/Parc du Cinquantenaire, Brussels, Belgium

– Second Circular –

 The Royal Institute for Cultural Heritage (KIK-IRPA, Brussels, Belgium), the University of Antwerp (UA, Antwerp, Belgium) and the Royal Museums of Art and History (KMKG-MRAH, Brussels, Belgium) invite you to participate in our two-day conference European Lacquer in Context.

The theme of this conference is European lacquers in a broad sense: theoretical and practical work concerning conservation and restoration, art historical, technological and chemical research will be highlighted.

We encourage students, young and established professionals to submit an abstract for either a poster or a paper presentation. Both theory and practice-oriented contributions from professionals working with European lacquers are considered (among others curators, conservators, restorers, art historians, analytical scientists and anyone with an interest in European lacquers). Presentations of collaboration projects between different professions are strongly encouraged.
