A meticulous selection of portraits from the National Gallery of Modern and Contemporary 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 directorial 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.
