From the analysis of the artist’s figure, to her relationship with her husband Diego Rivera, to the pre-Colombian influences on which the works themselves are based, the exhibit will describe Frida Kahlo’s personality in a way that goes far beyond the artistic facade, without forgetting about her civil engagement and her political interests, thanks to the documentary material preserved in Casa Azul’s archive that will be presented for the occasion.
