**RESCHEDULED** Art Talk - Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving
Please note, this event has expired.
First Wednesday Art Talk – Frida Kahlo’s political, social and personal influences
This exhibit at the De Young (March 21-July 26) examines how politics, gender, disability, and national identity influenced Kahlo’s diverse modes of creativity.
The exhibition features highly personal items, which came to light in 2004 at her lifelong home, La Casa Azul (now Museo Frida Kahlo) in Mexico City—including approximately 30 photographs, 20 vibrant Tehuana costumes from her wardrobe, and personalized braces and prosthetics—alongside paintings and drawings by the artist and photographs reflecting her iconic style.
Frida Kahlo’s oeuvre deals with many topics that were not only significant to the artist but are still relevant today.
This exhibition provides the Bay Area community and other museum visitors the opportunity to explore how Kahlo constructed her identity through self-fashioning with Tehuana dress and accessories, focusing on themes of disability and ethnicity, both in her life and in her art. This exhibition complements the Fine Arts Museums’ holdings and will feature modern and pre-Hispanic Mexican artworks from the museums’ collection.
