іViva La Vida!
Celebrating the extraordinary art and life of Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera
Saturday, October 13, 2012
at the Art Gallery of Ontario
For the first time in Canada, two of Mexico's most famous painters and icons of 20th-century art are together at the highly anticipated exhibition Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting. We are thrilled to be hosting what will be the most celebrated art event of the fall season. Rooted in the richness of Mexican culture, the evening will commence with a family-style feast hosted by the AGO's Executive Chef Anne Yarymowich, followed by a fiesta showcasing artist projects inspired by Frida & Diego artworks. Guests will enjoy exclusive, preview access to the exhibition before AGO members or the general public.
