'Immersive Frida Kahlo' exhibit opens in Denver

Immerse yourself in the art and life of Frida! She overcame pain and adversity through self-expression – turning her life into art.

DENVER — "Immersive Frida Kahlo" debuted in Denver on March 3.

"Immersive Frida Kahlo, Her Life. Her Love. Her art.” is the name of the exhibit. It's from the producers of the critically acclaimed Immersive Van Gogh exhibit, Lighthouse Immersive and Maestro Immersive Art.

The exhibit showcases her journey through her life, pain, and triumph. Frida Kahlo, who lived from 1907 to 1954, is the 20th-century Mexican artist best known for compelling self-portraits and radiant pieces inspired by life in her native country of Mexico. 

The exhibition features some of the artist’s best-known works “brought to life” by the world-renowned master of digital art, Italy’s Massimiliano Siccardi, accompanied by composer Luca Longobardi’s resonant score, and art direction by Vittorio Guidotti.

The music and the soundtrack of the exhibit is a big piece of it, because as you listen to the soundtrack-based video, solid animations illustrated through a number of projectors show Kahlo’s art.

The exhibit portrays the artist's work and the unique characteristics of the Mexican landscape, cities, towns and her travels abroad to Europe and to the United States – moreover, Kahlo’s ideals into the Communist Party and the Mexican Nationalist movement. 

The announcement of "Immersive Frida Kahlo" comes after a recent record-breaking sale of Frida Kahlo’s 1949 painting “Diego and I,” which sold at Sotheby’s on Nov. 16 for $34.9 million, making it the most prized piece of Latin American artwork ever sold at auction. 

"Immersive Frida Kahlo" runs through May 30. Tickets start at $39.99 and can be purchased online.
