On Tuesday, 13th of November, the DLD College London Spanish Department took a trip to the V&A Museum to visit the exhibition on the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Fridao Kahlo was an early 20th century artist whose art was inspired by her native Mexico. Her art was often autobiographical, and mixed realism with fantasy elements. She used a native folk style art style to explore themes of identity, gender, class, post-colonialism and race in Mexican society at the time.
The collection of photographs, footage and personal belongings such as accessories, items of clothing and even prosthetic shoes and corsets worn by the artist offer a unique experience into Frida’s world. This is the first time the exhibition has left her native a Mexico and we had the great opportunity to admire and enjoy it.
