Join the AFA for a special, before-hours tour of Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving with Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art.

Mexican artist Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) had a unique and immediately recognizable style that was an integral part of her identity. Kahlo came to define herself through her ethnicity, disability, and politics, all of which were at the heart of her work.

Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving is the largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions.  These personal artifacts—which range from Tehuana clothing, contemporary and pre-Colonial jewelry, and some of the many hand-painted corsets and prosthetics used by the artist during her lifetime—are displayed alongside important paintings, drawings, and photographs.
