Freda Kahlo and Diego RIvera: Between Tradition and the Avant Garde
This lecture will focus on the evolution of Kahlo’s painting style and her iconography, examining how she used the human body, principally her own, as a vehicle for elaborating complex symbolic narratives about life, culture and politics in revolutionary Mexico. Adriana Zavala, associate professor of art history and director of Latino studies minor, Tufts University, will situate Kahlo’s work within a broader context by comparing works by Frida and Diego to their Mexican contemporaries.
