"Frida Kahlo Experience. Ojos que no ven corazón que no siente" at PAN in Naples, Italy

03 May 2021 | 11 July 2021

A photographic exhibition and a multimedia experience

For the first time in Europe, a unique, exciting and revealing selection of very rare unpublished photographs and letters referring to known and unpublished moments in the life of Frida Kahlo is shown to the public.

The exhibition features an immersive multimedia area that immerses the public in the world of Frida Kahlo in a particular emotional journey.

Along the way there are reconstructions of the rooms dear to the artist, from the bedroom to the studio of Casa Azul, and the clothes and jewelry she often exhibited.

There will also be a documentary by Sky Arte entitled “Artists in Love”.

Alejandra López, who has coordinated for ten years the realization of temporary exhibitions and the restoration activities of Frida's legacy at Casa Azul, the Frida Kahlo Museum in Mexico City, declares: “The exhibition is a visual selection of important moments in Frida Kahlo's life. It is very inspiring to appreciate the different phases of his life, revealing information about her personal care, the intimacy of friendly encounters, masterfully captured by famous photographers, as well as about iconic moments in the history of Mexico and the world, such as the reception in the port of Tampico of the political refugee León Trotsky, where Frida was present. "

Alejandra López continues: "The selection of Ojos que no ven, corazón que no siente, containing photographs never seen before, allows us to discover the closeness of Rosa Covarrubias to Frida, as well as to show unpublished images of Frida Kahlo in the mural that the sculptor Isamu Noguchi made in Mexico City. It contains two photographs taken by Guillermo Kahlo after the death of Frida's mother and underlines the trust the artist generated upon the gallery owner Julien Levy, who made the artist's first solo exhibition possible ".
