29 June 2024 | 13 October 2024

The Upcountry History Museum is committed to connecting people, history and culture,” said Dana Thorpe, CEO of the Upcountry History Museum. “The museum’s upcoming exhibition, featuring artists Frida Kahlo and Nickolas Muray, beautifully illustrates this commitment. Most of us are familiar with Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits, her long elegant neck, striking eyebrows and wise, watching eyes. However, UHM, in collaboration with GuestCurator Traveling Exhibitions, will provide visitors with a different look at Kahlo through the lens of Muray’s camera. The exhibition has traveled throughout the United States, as well as internationallywe are honored to present this exhibition, for the first time, in South Carolina.

Muray took fifty pictures of Kahlo between 1937 and 1946, which are on display in this traveling exhibition.

Nickolas Muray, a successful fashion and commercial photographer in New York City, was born in Hungary and gained notoriety for his portraits of artists, politicians, socialites, and celebrities. He began experimenting with color early in his career and discovered Frida Kahlo to be his most colorful model.

Muray took more pictures of Kahlo than any other subject. The exhibition's portraits have been incorporated into many forms of popular culture and media, and they have played a crucial role in helping people around the world comprehend Frida Kahlo as the person behind her artwork.
