MISSION STATEMENT

ART BIO MATTERS (ABM) aims to provide a stimulating forum in which to explore current and new directions in the study of biological materials found in cultural heritage collections through a biannual meeting and a dedicated website.

While the core disciplines of ABM are

science, curatorial/cultural history, and conservation,

ABM welcomes other stakeholders involved in cultural heritage studies. A key aspect of the forum is the opportunity to discuss research at any stage of completion among a balanced community of experts in a format designed to promote collegial dialogue and debate.
