Frida Kahlo ‘Making Her Self Up Exhibition’ – Saturday 16 June

This exhibition one of the most awaited events in London.

As you may know Frida Kahlo was born in Mexico on July 6 1907 and died on July 13 1954.

She is one of the most recognised Latin American female artist of the 20th century, widely known for her famous self-portraits and for empowering herself through art. Kahlo became a defiant feminist symbol.

After a horrid bus accident, she was self-taught and started to focus on painting, while she had been recovering in a plaster cast for a long period. Self-portraits, passion and love, pain, indigenous and Mexican culture, magic realism, and female experience are part of Kahlo’s reality, reflected in her painting through vibrant tones.

Would you like to know more about her colourful art and lifestyle? In which case, the exhibition will be displaying a mixture of photographs, self-portraits, and her clothing (skirts, coats, etc), jewelry, cosmetics, amongst other belongings.

Where this will be located? Just visit the lovely Victoria and Albert Museum where the exhibition will take place. There you will find more than 200 private possessions coming especially from the Casa Azul (Frida Kahlo Museum) where she grew up.

The opening day will be on Saturday 16 June, and will stay open until 4 November, so grab your tickets asap by clicking on the link below:

About the author

¡Hola a todos! I'm Nereida from Barcelona, but while I have lived in this lovely city for 16 years, I was born in Ecuador, South America. I studied a Bachelor's degree in Linguistics, majoring in English and Spanish at the University of Barcelona and I hold a Master of Arts in Discourse Studies: Communication, Society & Learning from Pompeu Fabra University. I also have a Certificate in Teaching Spanish as a Foreign Language from International House, where I learned the principles of the communicative approach. I love teaching Spanish as much as I love learning languages. I think being able to speak a second language is important because it gives us the ability to communicate and understand other cultures and perspectives. I want to share with you my passion for intercultural communication! Ludwig Wittgenstein said “The limits of my language mean the limits of my world” so come to my lessons to expand your limits! ¡Nos vemos pronto!
