Frida Kahlo’s work, little known and appreciated during her lifetime, acquired importance and preeminence in the light of second-wave feminism, precisely because of its distinctive qualities that relate it to the feminist motto “The personal is political” that underlies the social, theoretical and cultural contributions of that movement. This talk will examine and contextualize specific works by Kahlo in order to illuminate the relevance of her work to contemporary issues of subjectivity, performativity and self-representation, suggesting a reading of the Frida Kahlo: Timeless exhibition through this lens.
