Exhibition – Frida Kahlo at the Art Gallery of New South Wales

Unibrow, mustache, braided hair trimmed with flowers, and a sturdy character. Welcome in Frida Kahlo’s world; a Mexican artist who remained strong even when fate knocked at her door; a woman whose beauty was both unique and stunning.

The Art Gallery of New South Wales exhibits some of the artist’s masterpieces and tell her story with great care. We can see black and white photographs taken in key moments of the artist’ life. Among these images there are some fragments of life she shared with Diego Rivera, some photographs taken by her lover Nickolas Muray, and one image of the Mexican icon in her death bed that fateful day when her close ones came to say a final goodbye.

Mono sourcil, moustache, cheveux tressés ornés de fleurs et tempérament de fer. Bienvenue dans l’univers de Frida Kahlo, artiste mexicaine au destin tragique dont le caractère reste à jamais entier alors que son corps vole plusieurs fois en éclats. Une femme unique à la beauté incontestable bien que non conventionnelle.

 

L’Art Gallery of New South Wales abrite le temps d’une exposition des chefs d’œuvre de l’artiste et retrace son histoire avec soin. On y trouve des photographies en noir et blanc prises à des moments clés de sa vie. Parmi elles des fragments de vie partagés avec Diego Rivera, des photographies prises par son amant Nickolas Muray et une image de l’icône mexicaine ce jour funeste oú ses proches se sont réunis autour de son cercueil pour lui dire adieu.
