Description

 

What can a single painting tell us about Frida Kahlo and her context? This experimental lecture takes one of Kahlo's most iconic self-portraits as a point of departure, in order to review past interpretations and open up new meanings, uncovered through a series of direct comparisons, expected and unexpected, ranging from Vincent Van Gogh to the 1937 Mexican 10-peso banknote.   

Presented by Jay Oles, Senior Lecturer in Art, Wellesley College

Program takes place live on Zoom.
