Life and Work of Frida Kahlo

The Reel Store

25 November 2022 to 29 January 2023 (11:00 - 19:00)


Step into the world of one of the most significant artists of the 20th century. Known for her vivid artwork, iconic style and extraordinary life, Frida Kahlo is an inspiration to many. Based on the artist’s diary, this award-winning, multisensory experience tells Kahlo’s story from a new perspective – in her own words. Suitable for all ages, the UK premiere of the Life and Work of Frida Kahlo combines a 360-degree projection, original soundtrack and hands-on display which place YOU at the heart of the exhibition. Beyond her iconic masterpieces and popular perceptions, the immersive experience takes you on an unforgettable journey of resilience, hope and bravery. Conceived, designed, and produced by international exhibition producer Acciona Cultura in collaboration with the Frida Kahlo Trust, the exhibition combines academic research with an immersive spectacle that places visitors at the centre of the experience. The curatorial team behind the exhibition was led by Roxana Velásquez, Executive Director of the San Diego Museum of Art, and Deidré Guevara, Curator of the exhibition Frida and I at the Georges Pompidou Museum in Paris.
