Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting | High Museum of Art

“I never paint dreams, I painted my own reality, I paint whatever passes through my mind without any other consideration.” This quote by Frida Kahlo not only explains her paintings but the passion of her culture in the 1900’s.  For the first and only time in 2013, “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics, and Painting,” will be exhibiting key paintings by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. These rare paintings tell the story of an artist during a troubling time of the Mexican Revolution and an inspiring time of the Mexican Renaissance. Frida and Diego’s art shows true passion for their country and cultural traditions of the lower class.  Frida’s culture focused paintings gives insight to her personal beliefs and the passion of keeping the Mexican culture during the Mexican Revolution.

This exhibition will feature February 14, 2013 – May 12, 2013 only at the High Museum of Art and this will be the only exhibition in the United States. The exhibition features many paintings drawn from Mexico’s Dolores Olmedo collection as well as Jazques and Natasha Gelman collection of Mexican Art. If you are looking to be surrounded by culture in one of Mexico’s renowned painters in the 20th century, this exhibition would not be one to miss.
