The 13th Conference of the International Committee for the Conservation of Mosaics (ICCM) will be held in Barcelona, October 15-20, 2017, at the invitation of the Barcelona Archaeological Service, a municipal body of the Institut de Cultura Barcelona City Council, with support from the Getty Foundation.

The conference is intended for conservators, restorers, archaeologists, and art historians, among others, who work in public institutions, museums, universities, city councils or others. It is also, in a very evident way, a conference designed for students and recent graduates, in addition to (usually small-scale) restoration companies.

Conference Theme:
WHAT COMES TO MIND WHEN YOU HEAR MOSAIC? Conserving mosaics from ancient to modern

Conference Venue:
The Conference will be held at El Born Centre de Cultura i Memoria.

The Bruegel dynasty, defined here as Pieter Bruegel the Elder and his artistic progeny, traded on its success for more than a century. Recent new hypotheses on the creative process and the chronology of the output of the family’s founder as well as an increasing interest in the careers and artistic production of the members of the second and third generations encourage further inquiry and reassessment.
