Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera Coming to AGO

We are thrilled with the announcement that the work of the most dynamic duo in the history of 20th century painting and culture, Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and Diego Rivera (1886-1957) will be at the AGO this year in October. It will be a major exhibit, titled “Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting”, showcasing 75 of the works by both Kahlo and Rivera. The show will open on October 20, 2012 and will continue until January 20, 2013.

Fun fact: During an interview for an article Frida, referring to Rivera of whom she was 20 years younger, said “he does pretty well for a little boy, but it is I who am the big artist.”
