"Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving" at De Young Museum in San Francisco

21 March 2020 | 26 July 2020

90 years after she first visited San Francisco with her husband Diego Rivera, Kahlo returns in the context of an exhibition displaying a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions.

"Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving" features highly personal items, which came to light in 2004 at her lifelong home, La Casa Azul (now Museo Frida Kahlo) in Mexico City—including approximately 30 photographs, 20 vibrant Tehuana costumes from her wardrobe, and personalized braces and prosthetics—alongside paintings and drawings by the artist and photographs reflecting her iconic style. Frida Kahlo’s oeuvre deals with many topics that were not only significant to the artist but are still relevant today.
