Senior Conservator, Collections and Exhibitions
Julie Barten joined the Guggenheim conservation staff in 1994. She has focused on both modern and contemporary paintings in the collection, including treatment of and research on important works by Robert Delaunay, Morris Louis, Robert Ryman, Brice Marden, and Antoni Tápies. She has managed conservation's role in innumerable exhibitions, helping to ensure that works exhibited at the museum are appropriately conserved and safely transported and installed. She worked on a scholarly research project regarding Picasso's Woman Ironing (1904), which used specialized cameras to image the painting’s underpainting.

She held an internship and a Samuel H. Kress Foundation Fellowship at the Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York, prior to her employment at the Guggenheim.
