About the exhibition
Like many artists in the vibrant intellectual circles of Mexico City, Frida Calo eagerly collected traditional Mexican folk art as a celebration of Mexican national culture. She drew inspiration from these objects, realizing their political significance after the Mexican Revolution and including their visual and material qualities in their now-iconic paintings.

The exhibition focuses on Kahlo’s long-term hobbies of Mexican folk art, exploring her passion for items such as decorated ceramics, embroidered fabrics, children's toys and religious retablos. All this formed her own artistic practice.
