A meticulous selection of portraits from the National Gallery of Contemporary and Modern Art in Rome has been curated to comprise the group of contestants for a Beauty Contest, directed by the artist Paco Cao. The selection of the contestants involved the active participation of the entire museum staff, from the director to the curatorial, education, and restoration teams, with special attention given to the security guards, considering their daily and constant relationship with the artworks.
The Beauty Contest has established two categories: female and male; the objective is to select the most beautiful person in each category, based on physical appearance, demeanor, and attitude, independently of the style or technical quality of the works. The jury is the audience. You decide. Vote!
In the Primaries, the first phase of the contest, 18 males and 18 females will be chosen from the 35 males and 35 females initially selected. Only online vote will be available.
From October 2016 to January 2017 you can vote online to select the finalists in the Beauty Contest.
From February to March 2017 the finalists will be exhibited at the main museum gallery. The audience will vote a second time, both online and in-person. A ballot will be available at the museum.
On March 27th, 2017 the Grand Finale will be celebrated to proclaim the winners of the Beauty Contest.
