A few weeks ago, we shared the illuminating book Frida Kahlo: Her Photos, which was recently reissued by Editorial FM. Join us on February 20 for a conversation with the book’s editor, Pablo Ortiz Monasterio, who was asked to curate an exhibition of images from Kahlo’s vast archive of photography, never before seen by the public.

Hidden for decades within a bathroom in La Casa Azul in Mexico City (the artist’s famous home, now the Frida Kahlo Museum), the collection contained more than 6,000 photos taken by and belonging to the artist and her husband Diego Rivera. Monasterio ultimately gathered 401 of the most significant findings in the book, now in its third printing.

The virtual conversation is free and open to the public. Register to reserve your seat.
