The Conservation Department invites you for a behind the scenes visit to see the National Galleries of Scotland’s microfader. There are only around 30 microfaders in use in the world and Conservation staff at the Galleries have been working with the technology to analyse the collection. It is a tool that tests how sensitive an artwork is to light and helps us understand how colours may change over time. Hear about how it works and how curators use it on projects such as the redevelopment of our Scottish National Gallery.
The Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art is located 15 minutes’ walk from Princes Street. It includes two buildings, Modern One and Modern Two, set in a beautiful sculpture park.
Friends of the Galleries get free unlimited entry to all exhibitions, and enjoy a wide range of exclusive benefits including early exhibition access, special events and 10% discount in our cafes.
