The exhibition “Diego and Frida. A Smile Halfway” is a recompilation of photographs through which the wonderful world shared by Diego Rivera and Frida Kahlo – one of the most controversial couples in the history of Art in Mexico – is revealed.
United for 25 years, their relationship is marked by an infinity of encounters and disagreements. This axis of love witnessed innumerable contacts, closeness, complicity and deep friendships with great personalities of the time.
It is through the images captured by friends like Manuel Álvarez Bravo, Nickolas Muray and Edward Weston that different stages of the relationship, life, pain and death of Frida and Diego are presented.
