Making Faces: Portraiture and Models of Likeness workshop
Friday 18 February, 13.00-18.00
Ondaatje Wing Theatre, National Portrait Gallery

The workshop is free but pre-booking is essential. 
For booking information and list of speakers please see 
http://www.ucl.ac.uk/museums/research/likeness-project/workshop-1
 
This workshop will investigate the shifting concept of ‘likeness’ in portraiture as an interplay between interior and exterior identity, including the impact of Cartesian, phenomenological and psychoanalytic theories of mind and body. It will also consider the extent to which models of ‘likeness’ in portraiture can accommodate physical changes to the face through injury and disease, and how historical and contemporary developments in facial surgery challenge models of likeness predicated on physical appearance. 

  
This will be the first in a series of three interdisciplinary research workshops funded by the Arts and Humanities Research Council (AHRC) to investigate Likeness and Facial Recognition. These workshops will bring researchers in the arts, humanities social sciences and life sciences together with museum professionals and contemporary artists to investigate the historical context for our understanding of ‘likeness’ in portraiture and medical images of the face, and the potential of new research on facial recognition to inform work in the arts and humanities. The workshops will also be used to explore models of communication between researchers from the fine arts, the humanities and the sciences. 
  
The workshops are organised by UCL Art Collections, the National Portrait Gallery and Wellcome Library.
