Frida Khalo’s house is now open to the public via a virtual tour.
There are many ways in which the increasingly impactful and inspirational artist Frida Kahlo has been commodified. However, returning to her communist roots- her house has now been opened digitally to the public for free. A visit to Casa Azul in Mexico no longer requires that long-haul trip, as you can now take a peek at where history was made, immersing yourself in the eclectic world once lived. On display are over 300 pieces of her prize possessions, her famously gorgeous gardens and iconic clothing. You can also catch a glimpse of some of her most iconic works such as “Frida and the Caesarian Operation”, and “Portrait of My Father”, which were painted in that very house. The virtual exhibition is titled, ‘Appearances Can Be Deceiving’, and shows the authenticity behind the artists; far beyond the t-shirts, purses and posters so frequently on display today.
