A new immersive exhibition will debut in Phoenix this summer.

Frida Kahlo, An Immersive Biography,” will take attendees through the life and work of iconic Mexican artist Frida Kahlo.

Kahlo’s expressive paintings, with their accessible symbolism and colourful, exotic plants and animals, as well as her powerful self-portraits, are the seamless template for an immersive presentation with video projections and light and sound effects.

“Viva Frida Kahlo – Immersive Experience” offers an insight into the tragic life of the Mexican artist and her creations. Her pictures come to life in the projections, while a voice-over playing the role of Frida Kahlo comments on the events and a specially composed soundtrack paints the presentation’s acoustic background.
