Frida Kahlo’s art comes to life in new exhibition


Frida Kahlo’s life will be spotlighted in a new immersive experience starting in early July.

PHOENIX – As an artist known for her self-portraits that depict physical and emotional pain through vibrant color, Frida Kahlo is often celebrated for her passion and dedication to indigenous Mexican art and culture.

And for the first time in America, her passionate art comes to life in the exhibition “Frida Kahlo, An Immersive Biography”.

The exhibit will premiere in Phoenix on July 8 at the Walter Where? House, located at 702 North 21st Avenue. Tickets for the event go on sale Wednesday, June 8 at 9 a.m.

Kahlo suffered from polio as a child and suffered a tragic bus accident as a teenager that nearly took her life. As she recovered from several injuries, including a fractured spine and ribs, she took up painting to emphasize her pain. In his painting “The Broken Column”, his bodily injuries are depicted in great detail. She continued to paint during her recovery and her art is still influential today.

The immersive biography is a co-creation between Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, a digital arts center in Spain. It showcases Kahlo’s art through seven different transformative spaces allowing fans to step into her life and experience through her art.
