As you may know, there is a brand new exhibition based around the life of Frida Kahlo in London’s V&A museum – an iconic artist who was so ahead of her time. (Ends 4th November, 2018)
This exhibition presents an extraordinary collection of personal artefacts and clothing belonging to the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Locked away for 50 years after her death, this collection has never before been exhibited outside Mexico.”
As the popularity of Frida heats up once again, we just wanted to draw your attention to two of the exclusive experiences we can offer those of you who are interested in knowing more about Frida, her life and her art on a possible trip to Mexico.
PRIVATE AFTER HOURS EXPERIENCE AT FRIDA KAHLO’S RESIDENCE
Enjoy a unique experience of a private, after-hours visit to the historic home of famed Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Your exclusive visit to the Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as the Casa Azul, begins with a welcome cocktail in the lush gardens of this famous blue house. Under the knowledge of your expert guide, you will have a private visit to Casa Azul’s permanent and temporary showrooms. The museum contains an expertly curated collection of artwork by Frida Kahlo. Walk back in time as you explore the rooms once home to the Kahlo family through the collection which is displayed in the family quarters, well maintained in their original state from the 1950s. The building was the birthplace of Kahlo and is also the home where she grew up, lived with her husband Diego Rivera for a number of years.
After delving into Frida and Diego Rivera’s artistic past, you will be treated to a catered three- course dinner in the intimate garden of the home. A central space in the life of the Kahlo family, the garden holds a history of its own and we invite you to dine under the stars surrounded by memories of these two cherished artists.
