Frida...but so much more. . So proud of colleague #laylabermeo for her @mfaboston exhibition on #FridaKahlo & #Artepopular. The exhibition goes beyond the signature self/portraits to delve into the context of the issues of politics, class, representation & gender of artists circling the icon. . 1. Drawing from folk traditions of still life and a sweep of nationalism, Kahlo’s “Weeping Coconuts,” 1951 (in the @Lacma collection) was so surreally disturbing, it may have prompted the original patron to remove their name from the 🇲🇽 flag that reads “painted with great affection, Frida Kahlo.” . Space in the show was also given to Frida’s compatriates and fellow female painters: 2-3: her friend #RosaRolanda featured Frida as a child’s favorite play friend in “Girl with Doll,” 1943 ( @coleccionblaisten) while 4-7. the brilliant #MariaIzquierdo painted “Cupboard,” 1947 ( @coleccionblaisten) with craft objects like those collected in the day, such as the horse piggybank from Frida’s own collection. 8-10. Bermeo also included Frida’s tiny paintings on metal in the #exvoto tradition, including on tin “Girl with a Death Mask (She Plays Alone),” 1938 ( #nagoyacityartmuseum) next to an actual jaguar mask and her most famous painting “My Grandparents, My Parents, and I (Family Tree),” 1936 ( @themuseumofmodernart ) which redefines the votive tradition on her own terms. . #FridaReframed #SmartCurator #Womenartists #BiggerPicture #Bostonarts
