By Mª del Rosario Castro Díaz March 26, 2020

Google Arts & Culture has partnered with museums from all over the world to put on the ultimate Frida Kahlo exhibit.

What a time to be at home, because now we finally have the opportunity to explore 33 different museums at the same time and enjoy all of Frida Kahlo’s amazing works—without ever leaving the couch! Google Art & Culture’s online exhibit, “Faces of Frida,” features more than 800 pieces by (and of) the artist in what might be the most epic exhibition yet!

Google Arts & Culture has partnered with museums and other art institutions across 7 countries to bring us an expansive exhibit that not only includes the works of Kahlo herself, but also items from private collections and rare visuals of things that aren’t usually displayed at exhibits—such as her journals, letters, clothing and other personal possessions.

“20 ultra-high resolution images created using Art Camera, and five Street View tours of the places that made an impact on her career, including the “Blue House” where Kahlo was born, lived, and took her final breath. Thanks to an enhanced Street View experience, you can now take in the highlights on display at Frida Kahlo Museum or the “I Paint Myself” exhibition from your computer or phone—just tap on any artwork at the bottom of the screen to see how it looks on the wall and click through to learn about the artworks.”

The exhibition also features works by other artists that either feature Kahlo as their subject or have been heavily inspired by Kahlo’s legacy. These include an incredibly wide variety of works, al the way from photos of a young Frida taken by her father to works by her husband, artist Diego Rivera, and a created by the English National Ballet which draws upon the artist’s life and work.

The all-encompassing exhibit about the Mexican artist is a digital Frida Kahlo paradise. You can view “Faces of Frida” on Google Arts & Culture’s website.
