The Mexican artist Frida Kahlo is an icon that appeals to the imagination of many. Her turbulent, tragic life certainly contributes to that! Frida Kahlo is regarded in art history as one of the most important female artists of the 20th century. In her paintings she knew like no other how to connect her personal destiny with Mexican folk art, that was unique at the time! 30 artists have given their homage to this fantastic artist in their own way and in their own style.
The opening of Viva Frida! on July 13, 2019 celebrates the 65th death anniversary of the amazing Frida Kahlo.
The exhibition is on display until August 24th and is also part of the Art & Culture Pride.
July 11th until 13th will see the light of an art manifest in Amsterdam, at the Baggage Hall in Loods 6 (Loft 6), KNSM-Laan 143. This exact weekend marks the 60th year since the passing of the legendary artist Frida Kahlo. Artist Thessa van der Voort –who herself is greatly fascinated with Frida’s work- and GO Gallery owner Oscar van der Voorn have initiated this conceptual exhibition to honor Frida, whose work has been celebrated in Mexico as emblematic of national and indigenous tradition next to being an inadmissible symbol of feminism throughout her life and decades to follow.
