Viva la Frida!
The Viva la Frida! exhibition will present a unique combination of Kahlo’s art and personal objects, for which the Drents Museum is working together with Museo Dolores Olmedo and Museo Frida Kaho (formerly the Casa Azul or the Blue House) in Mexico City. A few works borrowed from other collections will complete Viva la Frida.
The Mexican Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) is without doubt one of the best-known and most popular artists in the world. Her impressive works of art, turbulent life and unusual lifestyle turned her into a global icon and a cult figure. A devastating bus crash resulted in her suffering great pain and having to undergo numerous operations throughout her life. Her great love for art, her husband the artist Diego Rivera, and Mexico and its indigenous culture gave her the strength to carry on. She painted self-portraits interwoven with symbolism reflecting her private life. Many of her works were inspired by her tempestuous relationship with Rivera and her broken body. She broke all the taboos of her time and became a cult figure. Her art and lifestyle have inspired many other artists.
The exhibition will be on at the Drents Museum from 8 October 2021 to 27 March 2022.
