"Frida Forever" at ArtScience Museum in Singapore

04 May 2024 | 01 September 2024

The ArtScience Museum celebrates the Year of Extraordinary Women in 2024.

"Frida Forever" is a fascinating schedule of events, movies, exhibitions, and virtual reality dedicated to Frida Kahlo, including:

  • Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon, an immersive biographical exhibition that celebrates the life of Kahlo through interactive installations, cutting edge technologies, 360-degree projections, and costumes, produced by Layers of Reality and Frida Kahlo Corporation 
  • Laid Bare: Frida’s Inner World , looking at Frida's life and career via the lens of her health history. This exhibition honors the remarkable artist who transformed a lifetime of chronic pain into her artwork, marking the 70th anniversary of her passing. The narrative of Laid Bare: Frida's Inner World interweaves the brittleness of human existence with the tenacity of the human spirit, illuminating the woman who lies beneath the contemporary cultural icon. The exhibition centers on the final years of Kahlo's life and explores a carefully selected archive of photographs, surgical reports, and medical records from her stay at the American British Cowdray Hospital, where she suffered from multiple spinal surgeries, lost her lower right limb, and received ongoing care until her death in 1954.

  • Exquisite Corpse VR Experience, inviting participants to explore the world she so passionately brought to life through her paintings by fusing her signature color scheme and evocative textures with vivid, dreamlike landscapes influenced by her artwork.
  • Floral Passage: A Tribute to Frida, is a commission by Mexican curator and artist Lidia Riveros, who resides in Singapore. Her flower arch installation, whose vivid colors capture Frida Kahlo's exuberant personality and her strong ties to her Mexican heritage, symbolizes a warm welcome to a home.
