There are few fine artists as recognized and beloved as Mexican painter Frida Kahlo. Noted for her evocative self-portraits, her life and work are currently the subjects of an Immersive Frida Kahlo exhibit. But if you want to really dive into her community and culture, check out the “Frida Kahlo, Her Photos” exhibit at the National Museum of Mexican Art through August 7, 2022.
This free exhibit showcases over 200 photos from the artist’s personal collection. The photos reflect her personal evolution as an artist and her connection to Mexico.
Also on display is “Surrounding Kahlo: Works from the Permanent Collection,” an exhibit that shows works inspired by Frida as well as the work of her students, “Los Fridos” and objects that she surrounded herself with like traditional Mexican clothing and Mesoamerican artifacts. The exhibit runs through January 15, 2023.
The National Museum of Mexican Art is open from Tuesday through Sunday, 10 am- 5 pm, with extended hours on Wednesdays until 8 pm through August 7, 2022. Admission is always free.
