Frida Kahlo in Vienna!

I'm so excited! Starting tomorrow, there'll be an exhibition in Vienna, dedicated to one of my all-time favourite artists ever! The Bank Austria Kunstforum will be presenting the first ever comprehensive Frida Kahlo Retrospective in Austria. The myth surrounding the Mexican artist has taken on global format; Frida is an icon with star character: an identification figure of Mexican culture, forerunner of the feminist movement, a brand promoted in a mega-merchandising machine, glitteringly exotic film subject for the Hollywood cinema.

By the way... If you haven't seen the movie (with Salma Hayek as Frida Kahlo) yet, go and watch it! It's a really beautiful film about a fascinating woman!

And let's not forget the brilliant soundtrack by Elliot Goldenthal...
