Contemporary Challenges and Traditional Knowledge of Conservation and Restoration

Milica Sekulić will hold a workshop called ‘Contemporary Challenges and Traditional Knowledge of Conservation and Restoration’ within the week of visual arts of the Kaleidoscope of Culture, in the Egység Cultural Station on 29 September from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

The workshop includes a short theoretical lecture on Novi Sad’s cultural heritage, with a focus on the basic postulates of conservation and restoration and practical work on the planned art objects, as well as a ‘round table’ discussion.

The practical work will include exercises based on conservation and restoration, thus the visitors can better understand this professional field and its significance. More precisely, participants will have a chance to conserve and restore art objects on canvas as well as on ceramic carriers. Participants will renovate, plaster, clean and retouch art objects.

The fourth ‘Kaleidoscope of Culture’ will be held from 2 September until 8 October 2021. During five weeks, this yearlong project of culture of togetherness that connects artists, cultural institutions, non-governmental organisations, citizens and visitors through various processes, will present five types of art. At the end of summer, the Kaleidoscope of Culture will present spaces and programmes throughout the city, promoting a unique image of the diversity of Novi Sad.
