"Frida Kahlo: The Life of an Icon" opened yesterday in Sydney, Australia

05 January 2023

This interactive exhibition on the life and work of Frida Kahlo has opened to headline the 2023 Sydney Festival.

Held at the Barangaroo Cutaway, the exhibition is the largest-ever event at the annual summer arts festival and is expected to draw thousands of visitors to the city.

John Shand writes in The Sydney Morning Herald "It hijacks your senses from the moment you walk in, but keeps its king-hit for the end. Having already become familiar with aspects of Frida Kahlo’s life and work, now you actually enter the late Mexican painter’s world, via headphones and virtual-reality headsets. This begins with the view from her bed when she was an invalid before her death: the furniture, the paintings and the window with a hummingbird hovering outside."

Co-created by the Frida Kahlo Corporation and the renowned Spanish digital arts company Layers of Reality, this multi-sensory experience features seven transformational spaces, from collections of historical photographs and original films, captivating holography, 360º projections and a virtual reality system that  literally transports visitors inside Kahlo’s most famous works.
