organized by ars graphica & the istituto centrale per la grafica
Curating graphic arts! Le arti grafiche al museo focussed on research related to prints, drawings and design (from the 15th century to the present) as objects of study and on the curatorial/conservative duties. We reflected on the various challenges in the field of cataloguing, curating and exhibiting graphic heritage.
