Face-Off: The Contemporary Portrait

15 October @ 1.30pm - 3.00pm

| £3.00

Lecture Theatre
Pay at the door.
This lecture by Adrian Sumner examines the contemporary obsession with ‘Self’ and how it is expressed in the many media available to current practitioners. Including stunning examples of faces both celebrated and anonymous in photography, film, painting, print and sculpture, and the terra incognita of CGI and its avatars, we explore the battle between Fame and Celebrity.
