Conservator, Paper and Photographs
Jeffrey Warda joined the Guggenheim's conservation staff in 2006. Since then he has been involved in the care and treatment of collection works on paper and photographs. Warda recently implemented a three-year project to rehouse the works-on-paper and photograph collections and finished a two-year digitization project of Robert Smithson's Hotel Palenque and Yucatan Mirror Displacements (1-9) (1969). Warda was chair of both the Electronic Media Specialty Group (EMG) (2006–08) and the Digital Photographic Documentation Task Force (2007–08) of the American Institute for Conservation of Historic and Artistic Works (AIC). In 2009, he received the Preservation Publication Award from the Society of American Archivists and the President's Award from AIC for his book, The AIC Guide to Digital Photography and Conservation Documentation. He is the founder and managing editor of EMG's biennial publication, The Electronic Media Review, and he serves on the Publications Committee of the AIC.
Prior to joining the Guggenheim, Warda was a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Fellow in paper conservation at the Brooklyn Museum and held internships at the Legion of Honor, Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, the Cooper-Hewitt National Design Museum, and the Brooklyn Museum.
Warda received an MA and a Certificate of Advanced Study in art conservation from the State University of New York, University at Buffalo, and holds a BA in art history from Bard College, Annandale-on-Hudson, New York.
