The sculpture titled ‘Progress’ by Lyndon Dadswell was recently re-installed in the new Rundle Mall Plaza development after an extensive conservation treatment by Artlab Australia.

Artlab Australia’s conservation treatment included a major clean, the overseeing of specialised copper welding and general preparation of the sculpture for re-installation to the façade of the building.

Established in 1985 and now part of the Department of the Premier and Cabinet, Artlab’s ethos is to provide a contemporary conservation service and to increase awareness in the importance of cultural heritage in our global history.
