About the exhibition
The spiritual, artistic and human sides of Mexican artist Frida Kahlo are explored by the “Frida Kahlo, il Caos Dentro” exhibition thanks to a multi-sensory technological display. Curated by Antonio Arévalo, Alejandra Matiz, Milagros Ancheita and Maria Rosso, thanks to reproductions of Kahlo’s works and letters, the exhibition offers visitors a chance to enter the spaces where the famous painter lived and started her pictorial career. Moreover, objects, clothes and elements which are part of the Mexican tradition help discover insightful highlights on her daily life and on the artist’s relationship with lover Diego Rivera.
What’s on display
After entering a special multimedia section featuring animated images telling of the happenings in Frida Kahlo’s personal life, the exhibition continues with a reconstruction of the bedroom, the studio and the garden at Kahlo’s Casa Azul, in Mexico. Another section features pictures and portraits of the artist in her daily life environment, while letters to her husband Diego Rivera are the protagonist of a dedicated section, intertwined with elements of the Mexican tradition and art. The collection of reproductions of portraits and works by the artist is also enhanced by the presence of original works such as “Piden Aeroplanos y les dan Alas de Petate” from 1938 and a series of lithographies in watercolour by Diego Rivera.
