Event description

Description

“Kahlo is variously enshrined in the popular imagination as a bohemian artist, a victim turned survivor, proto-feminist, sexual adventurer who challenged gender boundaries, and, with her mixed-race parentage, an embodiment of a hybrid, postcolonial world.” says the Tate.

She was also a style icon in the Americas, and had intense love affairs with Diego Rivera, Leon Trotsky, and painter Jacqueline Lamba (wife and muse of Surrealism founder André Breton).

With such a powerful cult of personality, no wonder Kahlo’s art has been eclipsed since her death in 1954. But she did produce over 200 works and is now revered by artists as diverse as Cindy Sherman, Kiki Smith and Madonna. Join us in May as Dr Marie-Anne Mancio explores the style, loves and art of the 'Frida Phenomenon'.

In time for the upcoming V&A exhibition Frida Kahlo’s Wardrobe
