This Tuesday, on 13th of November, the DLD College London Spanish Department visited the V&A Museum to take in the exhibition on the iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo. Kahlo was an early 20th century artist and her art was inspired by her home country, Mexico. Her art was very often autobiographical, and she mixed realism with fantasy. Known for using a native folk style art style Frida explored themes of identity, gender, class, post-colonialism and race in Mexican society at the time.
The collection of photographs, footage and personal belongings such as accessories, items of clothing and even prosthetic shoes and corsets worn by the artist offer a unique experience into Frida’s world. This is the first time the exhibition has left her native a Mexico and we had the great opportunity to admire and enjoy it.
DLD College London is part of the Abbey DLD Group of Colleges.
