Kahlo exhibit opens in Mexico - 13 Jun 2007
Holidays in Mexico are set to benefit from a landmark art event.
A new exhibition on Frida Kahlo has opened in the Palacio de Bellas Artes in Mexico City.
To commemorate the 100th anniversary of the artist's birth, works on display will include letters written by Kahlo, as well as photos and never-before-seen paintings.
Discussions on the icon's politics and life will also be part of the display, which will form an essential part of the itinerary of a holiday in Mexico this summer.
"It is important for our visitors to know that Frida wrote, thought, challenged the Americans...Here they will see the complete Frida," Museum Director Roxana Gonzalez told the Associated Press.
One of Mexico's most renowned cultural figures, the life of Kahlo was made into a film starring Salma Hayek.
