CCI Workshop: Exhibition Lighting

Exhibition lighting has undergone major transformations in the past decade. Museums must now adapt to a revolution in lighting technology driven by pressures to reduce energy costs and become more sustainable. Allowing visitors to view artifacts is a core role of museums; however, light can also cause damage to some objects, which violates the goal of preservation. This conflict between two fundamental functions of museums creates the philosophical dilemma of lighting. Situation-specific resolutions to this problem involve careful consideration of many practical issues: object sensitivity object visibility lamps and fixtures lighting policy This workshop touches on each of these issues and the sources of information for making educated lighting decisions.
