Frida Kahlo, oltre il mito - Frida Kahlo, beyond the myth, at MUDEC from February 1st to June 3rd, 2018 is an exciting exhibition project that is the result of six years of studies and research; it aims to provide a new key to the figure of the Mexican artist, it avoids preconceived reconstructions of her life, rational interpretations or pedantic biographies and includes unpublished and fascinating archival materials.
The exhibition will bring together all the works originating from the Museo Dolores Olmedo in Mexico City and the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, the two most important and extensive collections of Frida Kahlo’s works in the world. Leading international museums will also participate in the exhibition and some masterpieces that have never been seen before in Italy will be put on display.
The exhibition, curated by Diego Sileo, aims to look beyond the one-dimensional view of the relationship between life and the work of the Mexican artist, it shows that in order to make a serious and thorough analysis of Kahlo’s poetics it is necessary to go beyond the restrictions of a biography and seek further than the myth that has been nurtured by the influences of the previous decades.
More than one hundred works by the artist will be exhibited analytically through four sections - woman, earth, and politics, pain - which reflect the main themes of Kahlo’s works that emerged from the research carried out by the curator in Mexico.
