Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera are two of the world’s most famous artists and their art is now being shared in Mexican Geniuses: A Frida and Diego Immersive Experience. Produced by Fever, the same entertainment company responsible for the popular Van Gogh: The Immersive Experience, this new exhibition opens in the District on Friday, Aug. 19.
Mexican Geniuses, which first came to life in London earlier this year, showcases the passion, beauty, and emotional relationship that left a profound impact on the art world and beyond. With over 300 projections of bold and vibrant colors, this highly innovative digital experience immerses Washingtonians in the work of two of the most prolific artists of the 20th Century.
Curated by a diverse and multi-disciplinary team of art historians and specialists, creative writers, stage designers, and multimedia producers, the life and art of Frida and Diego are explored and embraced in a unique exhibition of light, color, and sound. The iconic artwork of Frida and Diego will come to life with the latest video-mapping technology in a strategic layout that is designed with an all-digital, hands-free
experience in mind. The immersive exhibition is structured in four galleries that tour through Frida and Diego’s individual and shared spaces, with the projection of paintings, photographs, and animations, in a multisensory experience that will be captivating to audiences of all ages.
Washingtonians are invited to dive into the artistic similarities and differences within the painting, as well as the incredible legacy both artists have left on the history of modern art, discovering what inspired these two revolutionary Mexican painters.
