Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is currently available at the Brooklyn Museum. This has to be one of my favorite Frida Exhibitions next to La Casa Azul. This exhibits dives into ways Frida expressed her femininity, ethnicity, politics, and disability through art and fashion.
Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving has an impressive collection of personal artifacts. From her “Tehuana” clothing, home videos, intimate photographs of Frida by other artists, casts, feature in Vouge, back braces, makeup, perfume, you name it (even her medical records, yikes).
The exhibit also talks about Frida’s time living in the US, or as she refered to “Gringolandia.”
The curator of this exhibition did a wonderful job. I left a bigger fan than I already was. I also left obsessed with a velvet cape she wore to an art opening (side note). Frida Kahlo knew what she liked, what she wanted to say, how to express herself, and she never apologized for it. I highly recommend this unique exhibition.
Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is available now until May 12, 2019.
