Conservators are increasingly concerned with the conservation of modern and contemporary artworks. They pose particular practical and ethical problems; recent legislation may also affect the way conservators think about contemporary works of art. This paper discusses legislation in the UK and other countries which may have a bearing on the way conservators treat contemporary artworks. The paper is a preliminary exploration of the issues raised as a result of considering the options for the conservation of a textile artwork by Robert Rauschenberg.
