Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera at IMMA

April 7, 2011 § Leave a comment

Self Portrait With Monkeys is one of the paintings on show at the Exhibition of Frida Kahlo and her erstwhile husband Diego Rivera opening to the public at the Irish Museum of Modern Art tomorrow, Wednesday April 6th. A fascinating couple, they were at the forefront of Mexican Modernism. As many will know who saw the movie about Frida (starring Selma Hayek) her husband was the artistic star when they met, but Frida’s innovative, provocative and surreal work strikes a chord with it’s symbolism and¬†dissociative representation of the Self, making her far the more important artist of the two. Wait for the stampede to the museum doors!
