What Will You Look Like If You’re A Statue? Quebec Museum Will Tell You

Will you look like Caesar or Venus? This is the question posed by the Quebec Musée de la Civilisation as it invites people around the globe to submit their photos for a chance to be curated alongside other 60 sculptures for their exhibition called My 2000-Year-Old Double.

A facial-recognition technology will allow the museum curators to match participants' faces with collections of 2,000-year-old sculptures from partner organizations, Musée d'art et d'histoire de Genève and the Fondation Gandur pour l'Art. Interested Caesars or Venuses can submit their photos until April 30 and wait until spring for the museum to announce their decisions.

The exhibition is slated on October 24, 2018, to October 27, 2019, to give ample time for people and the judges to review the photographs. Thirty participants will be chosen and be featured beside their Greco-Roman and Egyptian doubles.

The winning individuals will get a chance of having their photoshoots taken by Québec art photographer François Brunelle. The produced photographs will be displayed at the exhibition venue.

A paid trip to Quebec or Montreal will take winners to a famed photo studio once the museum has chosen its winning participants. But for now, individuals should rush in their photos either onsite in the gallery or directly online on their promotional website.

Quebec museum advised that for a perfect twinning photo, the entrant should take a front portrait of him or herself, and should be framed at the shoulder level. People should also avoid wearing accessories that may obstruct facial-recognition technology to distinguish faces.

Moreover, what's important perhaps is that participants should keep a straight face - no laughing or frowning, or following the expressions of some sample statues. Of course, proper lighting should be observed so the tech can better recognize the face.

Some statues that the museum might be using to compare your features are those of Demosthenes, Ptolemy II Philadelphus, Persephone, Aphrodite, Apollo, and Zeus.
