Another hot-ticket exhibition is coming to the Brooklyn Museum.
“Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving,” the largest U.S. exhibition in a decade devoted to the influential Mexican painter, will show paintings, drawings, photographs and films, along with clothing and other personal possessions — including hand-painted corsets and prosthetics — that were discovered in 2004.
Works from the museum’s collection of Mesoamerican art will also be part of the exhibition, displaying the “collecting interests” of Kahlo and her husband, the famous muralist Diego Rivera.
The exhibition is a version of the show that premiered at the Victoria and Albert Museum in London in 2018, and the new version is organized by Catherine Morris, Sackler Senior Curator for the Elizabeth A. Sackler Center for Feminist Art, and Lisa Small, Senior Curator, European Art.
Opening on February 8, the exhibition is ticketed; passes can be purchased here. It runs through May 12, but the first three days are already sold out so we suggest getting your tickets sooner rather than later.
