ARKEN celebrates the work of Mexico's Frida Kahlo (1907-1954), arguably the world's most famous female artist of the first half of the 20th century, and the greatest exponent of Latin American art.
Kahlo's life was marked by colour but marred by tragedy, both of which she incorporated into her work. Linked to influential men such as Leon Trotsky and André Breton, Kahlo later married revolutionary artist Diego Rivera.
This exhibition celebrates her distinctive blend of surrealism and realism by displaying a large number of her paintings, drawings and collages, including her iconic self-portraits. It also presents a series of entries from her diary, shedding light on a highly artistic individual who lived life to the full.
Tues-Sun 10.00-17.00. Wed 10.00-21.00
