What does a portrait tell us about a person? And how do we manipulate images of ourselves to tell different stories?

This multi-site programme begins at the Cindy Sherman photography exhibition at City Gallery, where students discuss characters and constructed identities.

Then, at Te Papa, students explore the museum’s collections online, and use innovative technologies to create a digital collage that features their own face.

The collaboration with City Gallery runs until 19 March 2017. After this date, the digital workshop continues at Te Papa.
