Mexican artist Frida Kahlo began painting in 1926, while recovering from a near-fatal bus accident, and soon became captivated by the medium's expressive possibilities. Kahlo's folkloric style, influenced by Mexican popular art, and her fantastical imagery earned her recognition among the Surrealists, but her intriguing persona and unmistakable originality propelled her beyond the confines of a specific movement to become a leading figure in modern art. This exhibition, commemorating the centennial of the artist's birth, brings together paintings that span her career, along with a selection of her own collection of photographs, most of which have never been on public display.

In anticipation of the popularity of Frida Kahlo, we will be using a timed ticketing system, with tickets issued for specific dates and times. Timed tickets limit the number of people in the gallery at any given time and minimize lines, resulting in a better viewing experience for all. Please choose your date and time carefully as tickets cannot be refunded. Tickets are subject to availability.

Advance timed tickets for Frida Kahlo are available online at http://www.museumtix.com/venue/program.asp?pvt=&vid=649&pid=7491997&code=
