Photographic exhibition of Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo at the French Alliance in Mexico City.
The National Council for Culture and the Arts (CONACULTA) and the National Institute of Fine Arts, through the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo and the French Alliance of Mexico, present the photo exhibition: Diego and Frida, a smile halfway.
To commemorate the 54th anniversary of the death of Mexican muralist and 125 years of his birth, the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo share a part of its photographic collection with other venues.
This photographic exhibition that brings together a total of 70 images captured, mostly by renowned photographers and friends of the couple, offers an intimate view of the most controversial couple in the history of the art scene in Mexico.
Love and hate, separations and reunions, suffering and happiness. It might be normal as human beings to be tormented and passionate. The fact is that these features fascinated his contemporaries and still do today; a couple of renowned and talented artists might suffer from earthly ills.
But one thing for sure is that despite their tortuous relationship, when it came to talent and boldness, the minds of these two people converged, and that without its undeniable complicity, they would have not shared 25 years of their lives together.
