Transport and packing of artworks: protecting them for the journey


 

Artworks from the Fundació often travel to be part of temporary exhibitions in other museums and institutions around the world. The packing of each piece is performed according to its particular characteristics and the type of transport used, whether truck, plane or ship. The objective is to ensure the work does not undergo any changes in the conditions necessary for its correct conservation. This talk will show some of the most commonly used materials employed when packing artworks and will discuss the different transport options offered by specialised companies.
