Curator Carrie Lederer states, “Iconic Frida Kahlo was a true visionary. Her paintings—exquisite and brutally honest—are a testimony to the way she thought and lived and embraced life. Universally loved, her paintings continue to be an inspiration for artists worldwide. This exhibition demonstrates the power and reach of Kahlo’s work, reflecting a rich range of interpretation in practically every media.”
