Mosaics: Conserve to display ?

Arles and Saint-Romain-en-Gal – France, 1999

7th Conference: “Mosaics. Conserve to Display?”

The 7th International Conference was held at Saint-Romain-en-Gal and Arles, through the good efforts of the French members of the Board, Patrick Blanc and Evelyne Chantriaux-Vicard. The theme was “Mosaics. Conserve to Display?” and, apart from the strong emphasis on in situ conservation, the conference also paid attention to the cases where such conservation is impossible.

Four recommendations were passed unanimously and a newly elected Board decided to elect Gaël de Guichen Honorary President, since he, more than anybody else, had worked for and given steady support to the ICCM ever since its inception.

The proceedings of the conference have been published as “Les mosaïques: Conserver pour présenter? Mosaics: Conserve to display?”. Actes de la VIIème conférence du Comité international pour la conservation des mosaïques.
