Intangible Matters: Mackintosh, Authenticity and Conservation
A symposium highlighting the recent conservation projects on Mackintosh Heritage. Jointly organised by The Glasgow School of Art and The Hunterian at the University of Glasgow.
Sat 20 October 2018
09:00 – 17:30 BST
This one-day symposium intends to look at the complex issues around authenticity and replication through the lens of Mackintosh Heritage past, present, and future. This event was conceived at the start of the year as a celebration of what seemed a new ‘Golden Age’ for Mackintosh in Glasgow, but which has been indelibly marked by the terrible second fire at the Glasgow School of Art. Nonetheless, an incredible body of research yet remains from that project, alongside those completed this year – the Oak Room at the V&A Dundee, and Mackintosh at the Willow. All of these efforts, as well as the work of many years past, are yet worthy of celebration and reflection.
