ISAAC’s projects takes the research team to museums, galleries and heritage sites across the World. We have visited numerous national and international organisations, applying our multimodal analysis for the examination of various artworks of different type and style.

  • From European projects at London’s V&A museum, the Louvre in Paris and Fondation Beyeler near Basal, Switzerland to North American work at New York’s Brooklyn Museum and Getty Conservation Institution (GCI) based in Los Angeles.
  • In China, our research has taken us to Shaan Xi History Musuem, in Xi'an, the Dunhuang Research Academy in Gansu and the National Museum of China, Beijing.
