The Exhibition On Screen Commemorating Frida Kahlo

The Exhibition On Screen Commemorating Frida Kahlo

In 1925, Frida Kahlo suffered near-fatal injuries to her spine, pelvis, and hips from a road traffic accident between a bus she was riding and a streetcar. During her recovery, Kahlo spent months practicing her painting techniques, assembling pieces of the world according to her own singular vision. She painted an array of artworks, from still lives to spiritual scenes, friends, and families. However, it was her mesmerising self-portraits that put her on the map for the whole world to see. Particularly, her initial works of ‘Self-portrait in a Velvet Dress’ as part of the period of Naïve art truly embellished the kind of artist she would become. From the focus on her sharp brows, hawking stare, long beck, and facial hair, Frida Kahlo was becoming a formidable artist by transforming her art to tackle religious and social imagery.

A recent exhibition is giving art enthusiasts the opportunity to explore the life of Frida Kahlo and discover her art, her life as a true icon, and also take a deep dive into her tumultuous yet turbulent past life. The exhibition also makes use of Kahlo’s letters to direct the path of the film, digging through her deepest feelings and scrutinising the blatant and also underlining symbolisms that are embedded into her art. The exhibition also incorporates a combination of interviews, commentary, and an intricate view of her art and vibrancy.

Directed by Ali Ray, this exhibition will be able to help spectators ‘discover the real Frida Kahlo’. Tickets can be accessed through the Spazju Kreattiv website.
