FRIDA KAHLO, Beyond Appearances

For the first time in France, in close cooperation with the Museo Frida Kahlo, the exhibition gathers over 200 objects from the Casa Azul, the house where Frida was born and where she grew : clothes, letters, accessories, cosmetics, medications, medical prosthesis… These personal effects were sealed , when the artist died in 1954, by her husband , the wall painter Diego Rivera, and were rediscovered 50 years later, in 2004. This precious collection - which includes traditional Tehuana dresses , precolumbian necklaces that Frida collected, specimens of hand painted corsets and prosthesis …- is presented alongside films and photographies of the artist, with the wish to create a visual narrative of her outstanding unconventional life.
