The exhibit, titled Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can be Deceiving will take a deep dive into the lives of Kahlo and her husband, Diego Rivera. According to the museum’s announcement, this will be the “largest U.S. exhibition in ten years devoted to the iconic painter and the first in the United States to display a collection of her clothing and other personal possessions, which were rediscovered and inventoried in 2004 after being locked away since Kahlo’s death, in 1954.”
Her personal artifacts will include items like her Tehuana clothing, unique jewelry, hand painted prosthetics, and hand painted corsets she used. These items will be displayed along with related historical items and her works of art—photographs, paintings, drawings.
