Life and Work of Frida Kahlo offers an artistic interpretation of the artwork and life of the renowned Mexican painter Frida Kahlo, allowing visitors to understand her multiple aspects: as a woman, as a painter and as a historical figure.
More than a hundred plastic artworks, literary pieces and photographs pay tribute to the painter. Displaying 2,500 animated photograms, hand-painted by various artists, the exhibition brings Frida Kahlo’s masterpieces to life. It combines cinematic and traditional museum experiences, featuring large-scale audiovisual elements, which set the tone for the exhibition.
Goya-nominated composer and pianist Arturo Cardelús created the original musical soundtrack, which was recorded with the Budapest Art Orchestra under the direction of its conductor, Peter Pejtsik.
The exhibition was curated by Roxana Velásquez Martínez del Campo, executive director of the San Diego Museum of Art, and Deidré Guevara, curator of the exhibition Frida and Me at the Georges Pompidou Museum in Paris.
