The exhibition Frida &\; Diego: Passion\, Politics and Pa inting features more than 80 paintings and works on paper by Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera and more tha n 60 photographs of the couple\, whose shared passion for each other and Me xico's revolutionary culture during the 1920s and 1930s have made them Mexi co's most famous artists. Assembled from three distinguished Mexican privat e collections on Mexican art\, the Museo Dolores Olmedo\, Colección Gelman\ , and Galería Arvil\, the exhibition provides the opportunity to view almos t one quarter of Kahlo's entire body of work and a range of Rivera's painti ng styles from his early cubist period and studies for his Mexican murals t o his portraits and later landscapes.

\n

During their lifetime together as a married couple\, Rivera achieved international prominence as a muralist a rtist\, while Kahlo's intimate paintings were embraced by the Surrealist mo vement and the Mexican art world but not well known in the broader context of art and modernism. Guest-curated at the AGO by Dot Tuer\, Frida & \; Diego: Passion\, Politics and Painting offers a new perspective on their artistic significance for the 21st century: one which encompasses how their paintings reflect both the dramatic story of their lives together an d their artistic commitment to the transformative political and cultural va lues of post-revolutionary Mexico.
