Brought baby & met a friend to catch the final days of the popular Frida Kahlo exhibit at the New York Botanical Gardens in the bronx! Luckily we capitalized on the unseasonably warm late october weather—it was nearly 70 F & sunny.
Exhibit was based on the blue house/casa azul that Frida Kahlo & her husband artist Diego Rivera lived in & is now a museum in Mexico City.
The exhibit was split between the plant based part in conservatory & the art part in library.
The library part of NYBG Frida exhibit. My favorite installation was artist Humberto Spindola’s paper life size version of Kahlo’s famous two Fridas/dos Fridas painting. Apparently randomly during the exhibit’s run there is occassionally a real life rendering of las dos fridas with 2 actresses as living breathing Fridas. I wasnt lucky enough to catch that today.
