Frida Kahlo: Pitahayas

Exhibition Website

Oct 13 2018 - Feb 3 2019

Frida Kahlo: Pitahayas provides an opportunity to explore a profound work by a significant artist. Much like the pitahaya fruit, with its delicate, fleshy center concealed inside its bright pink exterior, Kahlo embedded a deeply personal history in this vibrant still life. The personal iconography and extensive exhibition history of the painting—one that even changed the skeleton’s smile to a frown—suggests the work is not only a still life, but an intimate self-portrait of the artist.
