Frida and Me – Children’s exhibition at Central Library
A NEW exhibition to explore the work of world-famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo makes its UK debut at the Central Library in Liverpool.
A children’s exhibition-workshop inspired by world-famous Mexican artist Frida Kahlo originally commissioned by Centre Pompidou and the Government of the State of Guerrero.
The Frida and Me exhibition, developed by Paris’ Pompidou Centre (Frida et Moi), is aimed at children and their families and invites them to experience the inventiveness, the power and magic of Kahlo’s work in an active way.
“Frida Kahlo, shows through her painting, her family, loved ones, friends and pets, as well as her ideas, fears and desires.
“Using Frida’s self-portrait as the main axis and guide, children will be able to question themselves about notions of their own life.”
After its success in Paris, where 71,000 visitors enjoyed it, Liverpool’s Central Library was selected as the perfect venue to present this exhibition-workshop.
There will be no original Frida works in the exhibition although there will be many representations of her work.
‘Frida and Me’ is supported by Arts Council England, MX Proyecta, Centre Pompidou, the Government of the State of Guerrero, Arts & Fun, Central Library and AMEXCID-UK-Mexico 2015.
Open Mon-Fri 9-8 and Sat/Sun 9-5.
