Description

Today, people carry tote bags plastered with Frida Kahlo's image. They wear t-shirts with her unibrow. She is as commercialized as the Mona Lisa. But in her time, Kahlo was a rebel who challenged the status quo with her paintings and her life.

Kahlo provoked those in power by embracing Mexico’s native folk art instead of Spanish-inspired art like other Mexican artists of her time. She was a rebel in all aspects of her short and turbulent life, from her style to her politics to her unconventional personal relationships.

Join renowned literature professor and novelist Dr. Barbara Mujica for a two-part talk on the captivating life and art of Frida Kahlo. Understand the iconic woman behind the iconic image.
