Brooklyn Museum: Frida Kahlo
Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
Mexican artist Frida Kahlo’s unique and immediately recognizable style was an integral part of her identity. Kahlo came to define herself through her ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work. Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954.
In this exhibition film, museum visitors share their reactions to the life of Frida Kahlo as told through the objects in the exhibition. This project marks our tenth collaboration with the Brooklyn Museum. Scroll down to view more.
