Iona Goldie-Scot graduated from the University of St Andrews in 2013 with a First Class Master’s degree in Ancient History and went on to receive a Distinction in the Master’s in Art Business at the Sotheby’s Institute of Art, London in 2015. Iona’s research background has primarily focused on archaeological conservation. Her first thesis examined the accelerating destruction of cultural heritage as a result of war and economic crisis, with a particular focus on the then underreported (2012) devastation of Syria. Iona continued exploring this topic in her next thesis investigating dealer strategy in the London and New York antiquities trades. Her research interests lie in the conservation and custodianship of cultural heritage, the shifting nature of custodian responsibility, and the efficacy of varying methods of documentation. Iona is currently pursuing a PhD as part of the newly established research and training programme New Approaches in the Conservation of Contemporary Art (NACCA). NACCA is a four-year, interdisciplinary project coordinated by Maastricht University, involving fifteen PhD candidates based at partner institutions throughout Europe. For more information please see www.nacca.eu. Iona’s project is focused on exploring opportunities of audience participation for the documentation and conservation of performance-based artworks.
