Arthur Fleischmann Archive transported to Tate today
Work on organizing and cataloguing the papers of Arthur Fleischmann was begun by Martin Greenwood in the late 1990s. Since then the trustees of the Arthur Fleischmann Foundation have contributed to this task, along side our archivist Peter Simpson. Finally today the approximately 6000 items of archive material were transported in 74 boxes to Tate Britain on Millbank in London. The archive will be kept in perpetuity by Tate for the nation. Once the papers have been checked, packaged into acid-free stationery, and numbered the public will be able to access the archive in the Hyman Kreitman Reading Rooms at Tate Britain on Millbank in London.
Salome watersculpture by Fleischmann restored
Work to restore the Perspex watersculpture "Salome" by Fleischmann was completed this month. The 1.2 metre high sculpture, created in circa 1980, is constructed from horizontal layers of alternating clear and red-tinted transparent Perspex. 

Several years ago the sculpture was broken into four fragments with clean breaks across laminations between layers, and it has been awaiting conservation. The restoration involved a thorough cleaning, followed by reassembly of the four fragments and bonding together using acrylic cement Tensol No 7. 

Over the next few days, the sculpture will be tested with water as a fountain to make sure everything is working correctly.
