A Mexican icon, Frida Kahlo has become a cultural touchstone through
her vibrant artwork, as well as her intense public persona. The
mission of this exhibition is to explore the many ways the art and
life of Frida Kahlo has influenced contemporary artists, defining
symbolic roles of culture, politics and gender. This important
exhibition showcases new works from many of Los Angeles' most
talented and creative artists.
