Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Between Tradition and the Avant-Garde

When: Thu., March 14, 7 p.m. 2013

This lecture will focus on the evolution of Kahlo's painting style and her iconography, examining how she used the human body, principally (though not exclusively) her own, as a vehicle for elaborating complex symbolic narratives about life, culture and politics in revolutionary Mexico. Adriana Zavala, associate professor of art history and director of Latino studies minor, Tufts University, will situate Kahlo's work within a broader context by comparing works included in the exhibition to works by Frida and Diego's Mexican contemporaries.
