Visit SGS' session: Better, Faster, Easier- A New Idea for Condition Reporting from SGS

A condition report's purpose is simple: to provide a thorough, objective accounting of the current state of condition for any work of art before, during, and after important moments in its lifespan. Despite this seemingly simple focus, there is dramatic variability in the quality and content of the condition reports, and their reliability and lack of standization has proved to be problematic. Learn how SGS has solved these problems and can support museums of all sizes in their acquisitions, exhibitions, and loans programs.
