Frida Kahlo was very seductive and continues to be also 110 years after her birth. This is why the city of Milan is staging the most important European exhibition ever devoted to the most famous and acclaimed Mexican woman painter at the new Museum of Cultures (MUDEC) of Milan designed by David Chipperfield (www.mudec.it). The exhibition will include oils, drawings, watercolours, letters and photographs, and is intended to bring together works by Frida that have never been displayed in Italy before. The exhibition will point out that Frida still holds many secrets. The Milan event will reveal, through artworks and documents, that Frida Kahlo was in effect a political activist, that she was aware of Diego Rivera’s influence on her painting and sought to avoid it, that she had a keen interest in drawing and, above all, that she was a great painter. It will also show that as well as expressing herself dramatically in her painting, Frida was also extremely witty and ironical, and brought a sensuality to her still lifes, like nobody else. The works, some for the first time in Italy, come from the most important museums of Mexico and the United States.
