INSIDE THE STUDIO OF DIEGO RIVERA
APRIL 18, 2013 @ 7 PM
HIGH MUSEUM OF ART, ATLANTA, GA
From 1934 to 1940, Frida and Diego lived in an avant-garde complex designed by their friend, the architect and painter, Juan O’Gorman. The innovative abode included not one, but two houses, one for each of the artists and was a sanctuary for the artists, particularly Kahlo.
Ms. Monserrat Sanchez Soler, Director of the Museo Casa Estudio Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo in Mexico City, will discuss this creative space of Kahlo’s and Rivera’s, as well as the studio practices of the artists, particularly touching on Rivera. The artist returned to the home after Kahlo’s death in 1954 and his studio remains preserved to this day.
