The annuaI student-led conference is named after Gerry Hedley, a Reader at The Courtauld Institute of Art, who taught generations of Conservation students and was a leader in research before his death in 1990.
This year the Gerry Hedley Student Symposium returns to The Courtauld Institute of Art for what promises to be an exciting event. It provides the students from all three UK institutions offering a postgraduate education in the conservation of paintings with an opportunity to share their work and research.
Topics for this year’s symposium range from technical studies of artists’ materials and techniques, investigations of analytical methods, to materials testing and environmental assessments. The conference also provides an environment where students and professionals can share ideas and interact.
