What We Do
Have you ever looked at paintings in a gallery or objects in a museum and wondered how these collections are sustained? Or looked at your prized broken vase and thought where can I get this restored? This is what we do. We care for your treasures.
Our team of qualified conservators provide specialised preservation and conservation services for works of art and historic items. Established in 1985, Artlab Australia is a government agency of Arts SA in the South Australian Department of State Development. Artlab is located in the centre of Adelaide’s exciting North Terrace cultural precinct and is the largest conservation centre in the Southern hemisphere.
Artlab is responsible for the conservation programs of the State’s extensive collections in Adelaide. Our business includes corporate clientele, galleries, museums, libraries, other cultural institutions and private clients with family treasures all over Australia and overseas.
We are committed to delivering first rate conservation practices embracing national and international recognised codes of practice of the Australian Institute for the Conservation of Cultural Material ensuring cultural heritage can be enjoyed by future generations.
Artlab’s ethos is to provide a contemporary conservation service and to increase awareness in the importance of cultural heritage in our global history.
