Event Details

Frida Kahlo is probably the most important and best-known female artist of the past century.

The talented and flamboyant Mexican was among a breed of female artists that built an unprecedented imagery for gender self-awareness during the decisive moment of feminine assertion among female artists in Mexico throughout the first half of the 20th century.

At the age of 18, Kahlo had a terrible bus accident that scarred her physically and psychologically forever, leaving her disabled. She was bed-bounded and immobilized for protracted periods of time. Self-portraiture became the primary focus of her art at this point and she began to paint using a mirror inset into the canopy of her four-poster bed. From then on, Kahlo became empowered through her art and her flamboyant Mexican dresses in a very unique way.

This talk will assess Frida’s art and dresses through Kahlo’s Mexico and her sense of cultural and gender pride following the Mexican Revolution (1910-1920).
