Special Interest Day — Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: Mexican Art and Culture. Chloe Sayer Monday 11 March 2019

Sussex Area Special Interest Day of three lectures at The Ark, Mount Lane, Turners Hill, West Sussex RH10 4RA. 10am to 3pm.

This SID will look at the work of Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and Diego Rivera (1886-1957), two of the most significant artists of the twentieth century. It will chronicle their flamboyant lives and turbulent marriage and will also examine their role in Mexican history. Key figures in the Mexican cultural renaissance of the 1930s, Kahlo and Rivera gave new value to the ancient cultures of the New World. After the revolution of 1910, at a critical time in Mexico’s turbulent history, they helped it to explore its identity as a post-Colonial nation.
