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. She always painted herself: her pain, her anguish, her sorrow, her passion, as well as her triumph over disability. Kahlo’s 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 Kahlo’s art, but also by her biography, her thoughts, and her writings.
