Frida Kahlo is one of the most famous artists in the world. Her reputation and persona have grown immensely since her death in 1954, yet posthumously she has been turned into a stereotype of Latin American art.

In a country that depends almost equally on a narrative of the self-made, pragmatism and the maverick alongside the relatively dominant influence of Christianity and the concept of serving God, the chronicles that make-up American identity are an amalgamation of symbols cut-up and repurposed into a collaged taxonomy. Heroism is deeply entwined with a belief in manif...   [more]

Autumn Ramsey’s exhibition at Adds Donna builds on a cultural inclination to look at the surface of things often without delving deeper.
