The MAC team includes seven paintings conservators, an objects/mixed media conservator, and an independent senior objects conservator, all graduate program-trained with additional musum and private practice experience. The paintings conservators trained in works from Old Masters to the present but have a particular focus and expertise in Impressionist, Modern, Post-War, and Contemporary paintings. The objects conservators have expertise in a wide range of materials including metals, wood, and plastics, In addition, MAC has two highy-skilled conservation technicians/preparators, a studio manager/photographer, a registrar, and an operations/HR administrator, all with a particular expertise and interest in modern and contemporary art.
The team's specialization developed in response to the large private and institutional collections of modern and contemporary art, the active market in this sector, and the wide range and unpredictable properties of materials used by artists. We collaborate with museum and private conservators of sculpture, paper, photo, textiles, and digital art to fulfill the interdisciplinary needs of modern and contemporary collections. We work closely with framers, shippers, fine art photographers, appraisers, adjusters, insurers, scientists, registrars, collection managers, and researchers to assist our clients throughout the conservation process. We are also a technical resource for artists, working together in both the restoration of damaged works and problem solving in the production of new works.
