One of the art world’s more turbulent marriages, the relationship of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is almost as famous as their paintings. Rivera’s murals were a major influence on painters from his native Mexico, but Rivera’s art also influenced many American artists. Frida Kahlo’s self-portraits are seminal works in the study of the subject as she intertwined personal symbolism with introspective images. Come to Saturdays at LHUCA as we discuss how these two artists’ unique visions and personalities often collided but also formed a harmony that neither could do without.
Saturday Lectures at LHUCA is an informal conversation over the life and work of contemporary artists. It’s a stress-free opportunity to examine the art and ideas that underlie much of the modern art world. Attendees are encouraged to ask questions and join the conversation.
