The exhibition “Mirror, Mirror… Photographs of Frida Kahlo” traces the artist’s life in more than 50 images by outstanding photographers including Lola and Manuel Alvarez Bravo, Imogen Cunningham, Carl Van Vechten, and Nickolas Muray. Visitors will follow Frida from a self-possessed adolescent to a passionate wife and lover, an independent artist, fashion icon and object of cult-like reverence.
The photography exhibition originated at Throckmorton Fine Art, New York. For the Santa Fe venue the Museum of Spanish Colonial Art has added a selection of large scale photographs by William Frej conveying the ambiance of the Casa Azul, the Kahlo family home and now the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, and a group of works created in homage to Frida by innovative artists from Santa Fe’s Spanish Market.
