Stop At: Museo Frida Kahlo

This show presents an interpretation of Frida Kahlo through the dresses discovered in her bathroom at the Blue House in 2004.

Duration: 2 hour

Stop At: Museo Diego Rivera Anahuacalli

The distribution of the pieces in the 23 rooms of the Anahuacalli Museum does not respond to an archaeological order, but rather an aesthetic vision. Rivera sought to link representations of ancient cultures with contemporary art, in such a way as to build a continuous line of time. For this reason, the pieces do not have an explanatory certificate, in order to be appreciated by themselves as a current work of art.
