In the Lichtenstein Theater

REGISTER

 

Join us for a talk with exhibition Curator Cristina Kahlo and Museum Executive Director Mónica Ramírez-Montagut. 

Kahlo: An Expanded Body is a groundbreaking investigation into celebrated artist Frida Kahlo (Mexican, 1907–1954) through a series of documents, photos, letters, and clinical files that shed light on her dramatic medical history and its sustained impact on her life and work. The multi-gallery exhibition provides new insight into the importance of the body as enduring source material for Kahlo’s representational and metaphorical depictions of her physical and emotional life.

The exhibition features more than 100 archives, letters, and photos—several never before seen—made available through exclusive access to private family files by Kahlo’s grandniece, the Mexican artist Cristina Kahlo. On view are facsimiles of personal letters and postcards between Frida and family, friends, lovers, and doctors; photographs of the artist and her inner circle by Mexican and international photographers including Lola Álvarez Bravo, Florence Arquin, Gisele Freund, Guillermo Kahlo, Antonio Kahlo, and Nickolas Muray; and extensive graphic medical records and documents. The exhibition is augmented by original work by Cristina Kahlo, and María and Tolita Figueroa.

Kahlo: An Expanded Body is co-curated by Cristina Kahlo; organized at the Parrish Art Museum by Mónica Ramírez-Montagut, Executive Director, with additional support from Kaitlin Halloran, Curatorial Assistant and Publications Coordinator.
