Retouching modern and contemporary paintings

Rachel Barker, accredited conservator specialized in the conservation of modern and contemporary paintings and has worked at Tate in London since 1999.
During this time, Rachel has been involved in a number of high profile projects mainly the conservation of Agnes Martin’s "Morning" and most recently the restauration of vandalized Rothko "Untitled Black of Maroon" in 2014. This restauration received widespread recognition and the project won the Anna Plowden Award for Research in Conservation in 2015.
She is currently on secondment carrying out restoration of Roy Lichtenstein’s ‘Whaam!’ as part of the European Nanorestart Project. Rachel’s research interest include examining ethical approaches to conserving modern and contemporary art, research into the conservator’s role in ensuring appropriate viewing experience for works of art and preserving surface nuance in modern painting

The aim of this workshop is to give an overview of the materials and techniques used to retouch modern and contemporary surfaces.
