Directed by: Ali Ray

This highly engaging film takes us on a journey through the life of one of the most prevalent female icons: Frida Kahlo. She was a prolific self-portraitist, using the canvas as a mirror through all stages of her turbulent and, at times, tragic life. Guided with interview, commentary and Frida’s own words, Exhibition On Screen uncovers that this, however, was not a life defined by tragedy.  

Featuring key exhibitions and interviews with world-renowned Kahlo curators, Exhibition on Screen explores the extraordinary symbolism and themes in these personal canvases to seek a deeper understanding of the real Frida Kahlo.  

Using cinema to take an up-close and intimate look at her works we examine how great an artist she can be considered. Displaying a treasure trove of colour and a feast of vibrancy on screen, this personal and intimate film offers privileged access to her works and highlights the source of her feverish creativity, her resilience and her unmatched lust for life, men, women, politics and her cultural heritage.  

We might think we already know Frida Kahlo – the image of floral crowns, big brows and folk style clothing have made her a muse to generations – but what lies beneath the surface of this intensely passionate woman? 

“I never paint dreams or nightmares. I paint my own reality”  Frida Kahlo

It now also means keeping 2 metres apart and wearing a face covering on the move inside the building. We will be asking all our customer to both enjoy themselves and to stick to some easy to follow guidelines. Find out how we’re keeping you safe here
