MAKING HER SELF UP

The V&A Museum, London

Frida Kahlo is known for a great many things – her art, socialist views, disability and sexuality are all fundamental jigsaw pieces of her life. Many focus on her marriage to Diego Rivera, ignoring the outstanding evidence of the relationships she had with women, and her self-proclaimed bisexuality – she had a love affair with Josephine Baker, for goodness sake! The V&A’s exhibition, Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up, opened its doors in June. Centred around Kahlo’s life, it exhibits a myriad of her belongings, many of which were discovered in The Blue House in 2004 – 50 years after her death. Rivera ordered her bathroom to be sealed, locking away a great many treasures. The patriarchy, eh? Unseen photographs, pre-Columbian necklaces, prosthetics, hand-painted medical casts, and of course, her iconic skirts, all take pride of place here. Though lacking it is in its queer context, the exhibition is still more than worth a visit.
