- Frida Kahlo: Beyond appearances.
The Palais Galliera pays tribute to one of the most emblematic women artists of the 20th century: Frida Kahlo. Far from the usual exhibitions, this one wanted to go, as its name suggests, "beyond appearances" to present the artist in her true light, and lift the veil on her personality.
Thanks to the partnership between the Palais Galliera and the Museo Frida Kahlo, this exhibition plunges you directly into the intimacy of this fantasized woman, you discover previously unpublished films and photographs and even the setting of her childhood, owing to more than 200 objects from the Casa Azul, the house where the artist was born and brought up.
Until 5th March 2023 at the Palais Galliera: 10, avenue Pierre 1er de Serbie, 16th arrondissement.
