Conservation and Scientific Research

The Museum’s conservation studio under construction.

Mission

The Conservation and Collection Management team is committed to preserving collections at the Hong Kong Palace Museum. In addition to conservation work, the team researches Chinese art materials and techniques, and organises public programmes to promote awareness of the significance of Chinese artistic techniques to global art history.

What we do

As the Museum displays over nine hundred loans, it is also acquiring objects for its own collection—some of which will be on display in “Private to Public: the history of Chinese art collecting in Hong Kong” of Gallery 6 — which must be conserved and readied for display.  

To allow the team to perform treatment and preventive conservation, as well as to research crafts and materials, we are procuring specialist books and laboratory equipment. We aim to establish a comprehensive library and a state-of-the-art laboratory for the conservation of Chinese art, educating future professionals in the field and facilitating knowledge exchange.

Workshops and events

Several workshops exploring the conservation and restoration of Chinese artworks on paper will be launched in conjunction with the Museum’s opening. Participants of all ages will be able to experience hands-on sessions dedicated to restoring paper artworks using traditional Chinese conservation techniques. The themes of the workshops will be based on specific exhibition topics and will be announced at a later date.

Fellowship and Internship (Coming soon)
