Frida Kahlo, Her Photos

Bendigo Art Gallery, 42 View Street, Bendigo, Victoria, 3550
Until 10 Feb 2019

Drawn from the extensive photographic archive of the Casa Azul (Blue House) this exhibition includes photographic highlights from the personal collection of Frida Kahlo.

The interests and obsessions that Kahlo grappled with throughout her life are reflected in this series of photographs: her family, her fascination for Diego Rivera and other loves, her crippled body and medical science, her friends and enemies, political struggles and art, the pre-Columbian past and her great love for Mexico and its traditions.

The exhibition reveals Kahlo’s passion for collecting historical photographs as reference material for her work, as well as the photographs of contemporaries including Man Ray, Martin Munkácsi, Edward Weston, Tina Modotti, Pierre Verger, and Lola and Manuel Álvarez Bravo.

Exclusive to Bendigo Art Gallery in Australia, this exhibition from the Frida Kahlo Museum and Diego Rivera Museum, curated by Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, and toured by Terra Esplêndida and Banco de México, the fiduciary of the Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo Museums.
