Introduction to the Research Center for
Conservation of Cultural Relics

         In 2009, National Taiwan Normal University College of Arts Dean Lin Chang-Te and Department of Fine Arts Chair Su Hsien-Fa advocated for the university’s development in cultural relics preservation in order to increase its competitiveness in the field and to make full use of the university’s valuable resources. As a result, the Ministry of Education approved the National Taiwan Normal University’s Restructuring Plan, appointing Assistant Professor Yuan-Feng Chang with the responsibility of undertaking all activities and services relating to the opening of a Research Center for Conservation of Cultural Relics. With the support of former College of Arts Dean Lee Cheng-Ming, on October 22, 2011 the Research Center for Conservation of Cultural Relics (RCCCR) was officially opened. Initially focused upon the conservation of East Asian paintings, under the present mentorship of Tokyo University of Arts Department of Conservation professors Utada Shinsuke, Kijima Takayasu, and Suzukamo Fujiko the RCCCR is also currently engaged in the development of Taiwanese oil painting conservation. In 2013, a new PhD program in conservation was established to develop a new generation of leading conservation professionals. The present Center follows modern international cultural heritage preservation codes of ethics and concepts, and acts accordingly with the concepts and techniques in the practice, art, preservation techniques, humanities, and the integration of modern technologies as advocated by UNESCO, thereby creating a cultural heritage preservation program and actively nurturing a group of professional National Taiwan Normal University conservators.

Integration of University Resources

  The RCCCR is founded upon the blending of the solid and established artistic and humanistic qualities of the NTNU Department of Fine Arts with science and technology, developing into a unique art and heritage conservation field. For example, the RCCCR has put together specialized teams for optical analysis; development and research of conservation-appropriate solvents and materials; and technical analysis and connoisseurship of artists’ materials, and further, is actively engaged in or undertakes important national conservation cases and research. Further, it hopes to develop into a world-class modern professional conservation center, becoming an important platform for the international exchange of professional Asian cultural heritage preservation. 24H 保全系統
