An exhibition that explores the life and work of Mexican painter Frida Kahlo aims to show visitors something new, says its artistic director.
The Coventry show is open to the public at the Reel Store from Friday until January 29.
Kahlo’s personal diary is used to mount the exhibit, organizers say.
“People will find something new, something they’ve never seen before,” says artistic director Carla Prat.
The exhibition was built in three stages, to cover the artist’s life as a public figure in the 1930s and 1940s, her personal story in Mexico and finally The Blue House in Mexico City where she lived and painted.
More than 100 works of art, literary works and photographs make up the show with a voiceover showcasing Kahlo’s writings.
