Caring for large objects can create challenges for museums. Using installation and conservation examples, an experienced registrar, a professional conservator and a rigging specialist will discuss concerns and solutions when monumental size and delicate structure are intertwined. Learn about the move and repair of a supersized Warhol soup can, the re-installation of large Oceanic artifacts at the MET and unique problems faced installing works of art at the Whitney’s Jeff Koons retrospective.
