Geneva Griswold’s work as the associate objects conservator at the Seattle Art Museum is both an art and a science. The 2007 Scripps graduate oversees the installation, storage, display, and preservation of the museum’s pre-modern collections. She returns to Scripps to discuss three ongoing projects: a recent treatment and loan of the bronze sculpture The Lamentation Over the Dead Christ (c. 1714) by Massimiliano Soldani; a technical study of the 14th-century Chinese sculpture The Monk at the Moment of Enlightenment; and the conservator’s role in the exhibition planning and reinstallation for the Seattle Asian Art Museum’s fall 2019 opening.
Presented in partnership with the Scripps Department of Art History.
