Cleve Carney Museum of Art: Frida Kahlo Timeless

Presented by McAninch Arts Center at McAninch Arts Center at College of DuPage

The Cleve Carney Art Gallery at the McAninch Arts Center in partnership with College of DuPage, is pleased to announce an exhibition of works by Frida Kahlo coming to the Glen Ellyn campus in the Summer of 2021. This comprehensive presentation of the life and works of the artist Frida Kahlo will feature 26 original pieces as well as an immersive historical exhibit that provides a framework of the life, circumstances and events that led to Kahlo becoming one of the most important painters of the 20th century and of our time.

Frida Kahlo Timeless considers the many elements at play in Kahlo’s work. The complexities of Kahlo’s paintings can not be fully understood or appreciated without insight into her person and the worlds she was a part of. Specifically the role of Mexico City as a center of international art and culture in the early and middle 20th century, as well as Kahlo’s lifelong refusal to allow illness to restrict her diverse and intense passions. In many ways, Kahlo’s painting, politics and identity were ahead of her time, and echo the zeitgeist of today. Kahlo explained that she “painted her reality”, this exhibition hopes to provide insight into that reality while allowing the viewer intimate access to her fantastic world.

This exhibition is made possible through the support from the College of DuPage Foundation the generous spirit of Milly and Alan Peterson, founding community members of College of DuPage and lifetime patrons of the McAninch Arts Center.
