The New York Botanical Garden in The Bronx will be home to an amazing and unique exhibition called ‘Frida Kahlo’s Garden’ starting May 16th of 2015 through November 1st 2015.
According to NYBG, it, “…will be the first solo presentation of Kahlo’s work in New York City in more than 25 years, and the first exhibition to focus exclusively on her intense interest in the botanical world.”
The New York Botanical Garden goes on to say:
Visitors to the Enid A. Haupt Conservatory will walk through a stunning flowershow re-imagining Kahlo’s studio and garden at Casa Azul (“Blue House”) in Coyoacán, Mexico City. Curated by distinguished art historian and specialist in Mexican art Adriana Zavala, Ph.D., the multifaceted exhibition will include a rare display of more than a dozen original Kahlo paintings and drawings on view in the LuEsther T. Mertz Library’s Rondina and LoFaro Gallery at the Garden. Accompanying events invite visitors to learn about Kahlo’s Mexico in a new way through poetry, lectures, themed events, tours, a Mexican food market, and an iPhone app.
“Frida Kahlo’s Garden will be a one-of-a-kind exhibition that will provide an in-depth look at Kahlo’s work and artistic environment and also celebrate the energy and sophistication of Mexican culture,” explains Gregory Long, CEO and The William C. Steere Sr. President of the Garden. “Frida Kahlo is a profoundly important artist whose work reflects the complexity of the her life and times. The Garden is proud to present this focused look at Kahlo’s work, which examines how it was influenced by nature.”
