The secrets of Frida Kahlo revealed at MUDEC

06 February 2018

“Why do I call him My Diego? He never was and never will be mine. He only belongs to himself” – Frida Kahlo.

One of the most acclaimed exhibitions of this year is now open at the Museo delle Culture di Milano, dedicated to the Mexican artist and illustrator, Frida Kahlo.

The artist is known for her revolutionary spirit, for the strong relationship that linked her to Diego Rivera and for her difficult health conditions that influenced her paintings, but Frida Kahlo’s life is so much more than that. For this reason, after six years of research and investigations the exhibition “Frida Kahlo. Beyond the Myth” was inaugurated aiming at surprising the visitors by showing the artist's innermost secrets and artworks in an interactive way never seen before.

In collaboration with Palacio Nacional de Bellas Artes and the Government of Mexico, more than 100 works were borrowed from the Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City and from Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, the two largest collections of Frida Kahlo’s works in the world.

For the first time in Italy, the exhibition curated by Diego Sileo shows four main sections around the artist's life: Women, Earth, Politics and Pain, reflecting her “Mexicanness” and the essence of her philosophy. It is definitely worthwhile getting to know Frida and learn more about her, through the exhibition opened until June 3rd.
