What would Frida say?
“Aye! Ya, con la SuFrida!”
A group exhibition changing up the Frida hype.
Lets talk about paying tribute and honoring vs commercializing, over-marketing, and appropriating.
We’ve challenged artists in creating an original piece, having the following questions in mind:
What is your personal take on how the image and idea of Frida is currently used? Does she and her art inspire you? Are you so over her? If Frida were to invite you to participate in an exhibit that she was curating, what would you create and submit? If Frida was here to see a piece of your own art, what would you draw or paint for her? If you had the chance to gift her a piece of your own art, what would it be?
This show is a collaboration and co-curated with artist AngMir.
Sunday, September 16th / 1pm-3pm
