The exhibition is an emotional journey into the life of the world icon Frida Kahlo: a journey to get to know the woman, her live and understand her essence, made up of strength, courage, talent and immense love. 

Next Exhibition and ONO contemporary art offer, from 1 February to 3 May 2020, "FRIDA KAHLO through the lens of Nickolas Muray", the exhibition event that offers an intimate and private look at the most prolific, well-known and loved artist of Mexico through the shots of Nickolas Muray, his longtime friend and lover.

For the first time in Europe, the public will be able to admire the complete collection of Nickolas Muray's photos of Frida, including the iconic "Frida Kahlo on White Bench".

Visitors will have the opportunity to immerse themselves in the feelings and emotions that have characterized the artist, starting from the suggestive and touching multimedia introduction area that simulates the noises and colors of the accident that marked the artist's life. The reproductions of the environments so dear to Frida, such as the famous bed of art and suffering, Mexican clothes, jewelry, will touch the spirit of an exceptional woman.

Sixty photos, taken by Nickolas Muray in the most secret moments of Kahlo's life, will be displayed, which will fill the eyes of the public with Frida's colors, expressions, eyes and smile. A real look at the most secret Frida, a journey organized by the Nickolas Muray archive through Guest Curator Traveling Exhibition, LCC.

The love letters between Frida and Nickolas are also on display. Immediately after their first meeting, Kahlo sent Muray a note that read: Nick, I love you like I would love an angel. You are a Lillie of the valley my love. I will never forget you, never, never. You are my whole live I hope you will never forget this. Frida. Underneath, following the message, the mold of a kiss, with a bright red lipstick, which has remained intact over time.
