BROOKLYN, N.Y. (PIX11) — New Yorkers drawn to art can find (and lose) themselves in an immersive exhibit of Frida Kahlo’s life in Brooklyn.
“The Life of An Icon” is staged in different cities around the country. The exhibit resembles a journey through the life of Frida Kahlo without reproductions of her paintings. Instead, Kahlo’s biography is explored through collections of photographs, original films, artistic installations, collector’s items, and newly created music representing moments of her life.
Angela Di Corpo, the exhibit’s marketing director, joined New York Living on Thursday to talk about why staging the exhibit in New York City is important. Watch the video player above for the full interview.
“She actually came to New York during her life. You actually see some pictures of her when she was in New York,” Di Corpo said. “We really want people to come here and really understand who Frida was and what she stood for.”
Tickets to the exhibit, located in DUMBO, can be purchased here.
