Journey through the life of one of the most influential artists of all time.

For the first time in Australia, a unique biographical exhibition allows you to better understand Frida Kahlo, the woman whose perseverance, rebellion and talent placed her eons ahead of her time.

Co-created by the Frida Kahlo Corporation and the renowned Spanish digital arts company Layers of Reality, this multi-sensory experience features seven transformational spaces, from collections of historical photographs and original films, captivating holography, 360º projections and a virtual reality system that will literally transport you inside Kahlo’s most famous works. There are opportunities to create your own flower crowns, turn your drawings into Frida-esque artwork and immortalise yourself through a souvenir illustrated photo, all accompanied by fresh arrangements of traditional Mexican music and live performance.

Wander through The Cutaway and prepare to be fully immersed in the colourful inspirations and pivotal moments of this 20th century icon.
