Contemporary artists use traditional, modern and sometimes unconventional materials for a variety of reasons; the materials are integral to their conceptual practice, workable or readily available. Made To Last: the conservation of art highlights the significance of artists’ original intent to assist in the long-term preservation of their work, providing a 'behind the scenes' insight into their practice. Curated by Sherryn Vardy, and touring through NETS Victoria, the exhibition explores investigative methods of conservation including the behaviour of materials over time and techniques used to preserve and document work for the future.

The exhibition will feature work by Brook Andrew, Penny Byrne, Juan Ford, Ghostpatrol & Claire Anna Watson, with NT artists Winsome Jobling, Sarah Pirrie, Sarah Ashley and Rita Cameron, as well as featuring work by the late Mike Brown.
