Save event

A biography of the life of Mexican painter, Frida Kahlo, who channeled the pain of a crippling injury and her tempestuous marriage into her work. 

Frida's life brings together several identity-conflicts, which will dominate the second half of the 20th century. Her pioneering role is equally important for the understanding of feminism (unprecedented images of the female body and traumatic experiences), postcolonialism (the difference between being Mexican or American) and the political stakes of modern art.

Beyond Contact: Postcolonial Approaches to Art Series 

The Beyond Contact Series is curated by Dr Péter Bokody and is comprised of two talks and two films. 

This series not only examines postcolonial approaches to art history, as part of the Mayflower year. It is also an opportunity to refocus our attention on the aggressive and exploitative nature of European expansion – and the role the visual arts has and continues to play in the shaping of world history.
