Frida Kahlo at The Dali December 17
Frida Kahlo se estrena el sabado en “The Dali”

Frida Kahlo at The Dali Debuts Saturday
Works & Photographs from the Most Celebrated Female Artist of All Time in Florida’s First-Ever Solo Kahlo Exhibition 

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA (December 13, 2016) – Examine the strength, the mind, the loves and life of the most celebrated female artist of all time when Frida Kahlo at The Dali premiers this Saturday, December 17 at The Dali Museum. Kahlo’s works have achieved significant importance in art, popular culture and the politics of personal identity. The exhibition features more than 60 pieces including 15 original paintings – many of them among Kahlo’s own favorites – seven drawings, and more than 45 of her personal photographs. Running through April 17, 2017, Frida Kahlo at The Dali is Florida’s first solo exhibition of works by Kahlo.

The exhibition, curated by The Dali’s Executive Director Dr. Hank Hine and the Museum’s Curator of Exhibitions, Dr. William Jeffett, celebrates the beautiful yet tumultuous life of the iconic artist. There are, in a sense, two Fridas: the suffering, pain-wracked Frida and the Frida alive to the joys of the universe. The exhibition demonstrates that despite her troubles, Frida’s legacy is her redeeming art and indomitable spirit.

The Museum creates exhibitions that compare or contrast in some way the relationship between the exhibiting artist and Salvador Dali; this exhibit sheds light on a number of profound similarities between Kahlo and Dali: their connection to dream, their yearning to embrace the cosmos, their fixations on an intensely loved companion. Both artists also meaningfully constructed their identities as part of their artwork, looked the part and lived it for the public.

“Much like Dali, Frida Kahlo was engaged in other interests outside of her art, such as Mexican culture, global politics, feminism, gardening and fashion,” said Hine. “When it came to suffering, she depicted hers as individual and real, but also as something more: a story of the human condition. Her misery is redemptive. She seems to say, ‘this is what I have, against all duration and all cruelty of fate, and I triumph still.’”

In conjunction with the exhibit, The Dali will host a variety of programs that engage visitors in journaling and gardening, two of Kahlo’s favorite pastimes; as well as programs focused on Mexican heritage and gender in relation to modern art. A monumental homage to Frida’s garden at her home in Mexico, Casa Azul, has been constructed in the Museum’s Avant-garden and is featured on the free audio tour guide which accompanies the exhibition, narrated by Academy Award winning actor Susan Sarandon. There will also be myriad film screenings by prominent Mexican directors such as Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuaron and Luis Bunuel. Cafe Gala will periodically feature Mexican-inspired specials and the Museum’s Store will boast a large collection of Frida Kahlo-inspired merchandise including home and outdoor decor, collectibles, books and more.

“The Frida Kahlo exhibit is opening at an exciting time for The Dali,” said Kathy Greif, Dali Museum Chief Marketing & Strategy Officer. “In addition to this captivating show, we just reintroduced – now as a permanent installation – our award winning virtual reality experience, Dreams of Dali. And we recently debuted a stunning 17-foot steel mustache in the Avant- garden created by local sculptor Donald Gialanella. We hope visitors will be delighted by all these new offerings, making it the perfect time to visit…again.”

Frida Kahlo at The Dali has been co-organized by The Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, FL and the Museo Dolores Olmedo, Mexico City. The exhibit also features works from the Vicente Wolf photographic collection.

Frida Kahlo se estrena el sabado en “The Dali” 
Trabajos y fotografías de la artista femenina más celebrada de todos los tiempos en nuestra exclusiva primera exhibicion de Kahlo en Florida

ST. PETERSBURG, FLA (13 de diciembre de 2016) – Examine la fuerza, la mente, el amor y la vida de la artista femenina mas celebrada de todos los tiempos cuando se estrene a Frida Kahlo en el museo Dali este sabado, 17 de diciembre. Los trabajos de Kahlo han logrado una importancia significativa en el arte, cultura popular y la política de identidad. La exhibicion presenta mas de 60 piezas incluyendo 15 pinturas originales, muchas de las cuales se encontraban entre las favoritas de Kahlo, siete dibujos y más de 45 fotografias personales. Abierta hasta el 17 de abril de 2017, Frida Kahlo at The Dali es la primera exhibicion exclusiva de las obras de Kahlo en Florida.

La exhibicion, es cogida por el director ejecutivo de The Dali, el Dr. Hank Hine, y el comisario de exhibiciones del Museo, el Dr. William Jeffett, celebra la hermosa y tumultuosa vida de esta emblematica artista. De cierto modo hay dos Fridas: la Frida llena de sufrimiento y dolor y la Frida llena de vida y abierta a las alegrias del universo. La exhibicion demuestra que a pesar de sus problemas, el legado de Frida es su arte redentor de su espíritu indomable.

El Museo ha creado exhibiciones que comparan o contrastan de alguna manera las relaciones entre el artista a exhibir y Salvador Dalí; esta exhibicion destaca un gran numero de similitudes entre Kahlo y Dalí: su conexion con los suenos, sus ansias por adoptar el cosmos, sus obsesiones hacia un compañero amado profundamente. Ambos artistas tambien construyeron sus identidades detalladamente como parte de su obra, se veían y vivian como tal ante su publico.

“Al igual que Dali, Frida Kahlo estaba involucrada en otros intereses fuera de su arte, como la cultura mexicana, la politica mundial, el feminismo, la jardineria y la moda”, dice Hine. “Cuando se trataba del sufrimiento, ella retrataba el suyo de manera individual y real, pero tambien como algo mas: la historia de la condicion humana. Su sufrimiento es redentor. Ella parece decir: ‘esto es lo que tengo que sufrir, contra toda la fuerza y crueldad del destino, y aun asi triunfare’”.

Junto con la exhibicion, The Dali presentara una variedad de programas por los cuales los visitantes participaran en leer la escritura de un diario y visitar en el jardin, dos de los pasatiempos preferidos de Kahlo, así como programas enfocados en la herencia mexicana y el genero femenino en relacion con el arte moderno. En homenaje monumental al jardin de Frida en su casa de Mexico, la Casa Azul, hemos construido un Jardín vanguardista (Avant-garden) del Museo y se oye en la visita guiada con audio gratuito que acompana la exhibicion, narrado por Susan Sarandon, la actriz ganadora de un premio Oscar. También habrá una variedad de proyecciones de películas de prominentes directores mexicanos como Guillermo del Toro, Alfonso Cuarón y Luis Buñuel. El Cafe Gala presentara periodicamente comidas especiales de inspiracion mexicana y la tienda del Museo enorgullece de vender una vasta coleccion de mercancia inspirada en Frida Kahlo, incluyendo decoraciones para el hogar, jardineria, mementos, libros y mas.

“La exhibicion Frida Kahlo se presentara en un momento emotivo para The Dali”, dijo Kathy Greif, directora de Marketing y Estrategia del Museo Dali. “Ademas de este cautivador espectaculo ha reintroducido, como una instalacion permanente, la galardonada experiencia de realidad virtual, Dreams of Dali. Recientemente hemos mejorado un maravilloso bigote de acero de 17 pies en el Jardin vanguardista creado por el escultor local Donald Gialanella. Esperamos que los visitantes queden fascinados por todas estas nuevas experiencias, haciendo asi que este sea el momento ideal para visitar nos… de nuevo”.

Frida Kahlo at The Dali ha sido organizado en conjunto por The Salvador Dali Museum, St. Petersburg, FL y el Museo Dolores Olmedo, Ciudad de Mexico. La exhibicion tambien presenta trabajos de la colección fotográfica de Vicente Wolf.
