Frida Kahlo remains one of the most influential artists of the 20th century, but her spectacular life experiences, writing and views on life and art have also influenced many artists. Frida always painted herself: her pain, her anguish, her sorrow, her passion, as well as her triumph over disability. Her paintings and retablos celebrate a life constantly reinventing itself, in spite of the physical disability that strove to confine it. This exhibition will showcase the work of artists influenced not only by Frida’s art, but also by her biography, her thoughts, and her writings.
