Interactions between Museum Lighting and Optically Coated Glazing

By Dr. Jennifer Booth, Fine Art and Museums Business Manager

Tru Vue contributed to the knowledge wealth presented at the Museum Lighting Conference in London, 11-13 September, with a scientific poster on the Interactions between Museum Lighting and Optically Coated Glazing.  Glazing is increasingly being used within museums and galleries to protect works of art and cultural heritage. However, there are often many curatorial concerns since depending on the type of material used, and the lighting conditions, glazing can impact the aesthetics of an artwork or artefact. This potentially alters viewer engagement and understanding of a piece. Decisions on lighting an artwork or exhibition space should not be taken in isolation from any glazing material placed in front of the work.
