Gabo Trust sponsors sculpture conservation surveys for major collections

The Gabo Trust has expanded its role in furthering research and understanding of contemporary sculpture conservation. Museums in the UK have a shortage of expert conservators in this emerging specialism, which includes conservation, managing change, the understanding of new materials and how they age, the necessity to liaise with living sculptors, their fabricators and foundries. In response to this need, the Gabo Trust has created a new grant for specialist sculpture surveys of museum collections of modern and contemporary sculpture.
