The Complete Frida Kahlo
This is the only exhibition worldwide where Frida Kahlo’s paintings can be seen in one place. Some paintings, especially from Kahlo’s early years, have never before been seen.
Presented by Global Entertainment Properties 1, LLC, (GEP1), the exhibition features 123 exact replicas of her known paintings in original size and original materials, hand-painted in the same style in which Kahlo painted them.
Also on display are over 500 fascinating possessions — jewelry, dresses, and adornments identical to those with which Kahlo surrounded herself, coming from the collection of the Kunstmuseum Gehrke-Remund in Germany. All are handmade using traditional methods, materials, and tools.
There is also a substantial collection of photos of Kahlo, her family, and friends in her work and life environments and a large collection of pre-Colombian through present-day Mexican folk art, which held a position of great importance in her and husband Diego Rivera’s lives.
Through June 8.
