Organized by Museo Frida Kahlo and Museo Diego Rivera-Anahuacalli Curated by Pablo Ortiz Monasterio
This exhibition includes a selection of 257 images from the 6,500 which are part of the Blue House archive. These photos have served as memories of Frida, as work tools or as a means to exorcise solitude. The exhibition is curated by the well-known photographer and photography historian Pablo Ortiz Monasterio who shows the importance of the photographic medium in Frida’s life.
This exhibition shows a series of images that belonged to her. They are grouped thematically into six sections: Her parents: Guillermo and Matilde; the Blue House; Her Crippled Body; Frida’s Loves; Photography and the Political Struggle: Diego’s Gaze. The exhibition does not intend to depict a chronological biography, but rather to present parts of the personal history of Frida, of a country and of a period of time.
