"Frida Kahlo. The Life of an Icon" opens today in Holon, Israel

26 May 2022

For the first time in Israel, an exceptional exhibition in sound and light will be dedicated to the life of Frida Kahlo.The exhibition will be held at THE CUBE complex - located in Peres Park in Holon on the outskirts of Tel Aviv - having been a resounding success in more than 30 cities around the world, with more than 5 million visitors. 

Co-created with the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, a digital art center in Spain, the event was imported to Israel at a cost of over $1.8 million.

The different periods of Frida Kahlo's life will be projected in a unique way on a thousand square meters of walls, and some of her works will be displayed in 360 degrees, giving the viewer an unforgettable experience.

Sounds, quotations, lights, colors, period photos or even drawings and portraits will immerse the visitor in the universe of the most popular Mexican artist in the world. In total, more than 150 of her works will be on display. 

"The accessibility of culture to the public is a very important value although it is not an integral part of the school curriculum. However, this is not an exhibition in the artistic sense of the term, because it does not present original works but offers impressive visual production and is more akin to an audio-visual spectacle," interdisciplinary artist Leor Grady told i24NEWS.

"To a great extent, this way of proceeding cannot substitute visits to a gallery or a museum which exhibits the fascinating original work of Frida Kahlo," he continued, adding that a similar production will also be presented soon at the Ramat Gan museum.
