“Diego and Frida: A Smile in the Middle of the Way” Exhibition
May 13 – August 4, 2017
From the Frida Kahlo-Diego Rivera universe, this exhibition of
selected photos registers a patina of long amorous encounters that are
the ultimate substance of Frida and Diegos’ tumultuous relationship.
Their thunderous passion and remarkable presence are displayed in a
yet multifaceted parsimony: all the lives contained in the lives of
Frida and Diego would seem much more vivid than a photographic series
in rigorous black and white. But like every display, this is also a
diary: a journal of feelings, historical moods, artistic lovers, and
political moods These photographs capture the flow of their world,
which was only possible due to the tenacious decision to group those
moments and save them from dispersion and forgetfulness to become a
visual matter that instigates curiosity and fascination.
