Born on July 6, 1907 in Coyocoan, Mexico City, Mexico, Frida Kahlo is considered one of the county’s greatest artists.
Her life was not easy as she suffered Polio as a child and later was in a major vehicular accident that put her into a full-body cast. This is when she started painting with the encouragement of her parents. “I paint myself because I am often alone and I am the subject I know best,” she once said.
Coming to Brooklyn this October is the virtual reality installation: Frida Kahlo, The Immersive Biography. It will be housed at the Immersive Pavilion, 261 Water Street in the DUMBO section of the city.
Kahlo’s popularity has grown exponentially after her death at the age of 48 and expanding even today — her mystique and contribution to the art world gains new admirers, students, teachers and historians. This exhibit is bound to be an impressive experience that takes place within 7 rooms and presented with awe-inspiring creativity via the latest technology.
The buzz on the city streets is that Frida Kahlo, The Immersive Biography is going a hot ticket like the Aztec sun, so get ready to make your purchase and reservation early.
Tickets go on sale to the public this Friday. However, there is a VIP sign up going on now.
