A spellbinding world of light, colour, and beauty awaits you when enjoying the paintings of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, the powerhouse duo who inspired one another to become the two of most influential figures in Mexican art. Though their works naturally dazzle when seen on canvas, there’s now a whole new way to experience them at Mexican Geniuses: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience, one of London’s most astounding art experiences. With 360-degree projection technology and state-of-the-art sound systems, this captivating art exhibition will be a truly unforgettable affair – and tickets are still available, but be quick as the exhibition closes on September 28!
The lives, loves, and legacies of this iconic duo are explored during the exhibition, and you’ll learn how Frida and Diego inspired one another to even greater achievements. Their art has left an indelible legacy on Mexico and the world, and these hyper-realistic paintings – along with audio guides, workshops, and panel discussions – will help you explore it fully. Inside, you will discover over 300 art projections, which highlight every detail of their paintings in bright, vivid clarity. As you soak up their striking masterpieces, it will be as if you are viewing the world through their eyes, seeing the spectrum of colour and rich tapestry of pattern that exists in nature and everyday life recreated in their expressive brushstrokes.
It all unfolds at Dock X, a spacious warehouse found in the heart of Canada Water, just four minutes from the station. The extensive venue has been totally transformed with immersive light technology: the first time this technique has ever been applied to the works of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. As the music, colour, and movement combine, you’ll feel as if you’ve stepped through the canvas into their paintings, which is not an experience you’ll want to miss…
The experience has been a smash-hit with visitors who’ve been whisked away to Mexico for the day, but there’s no need to just take our word for it…
Lee H. – An usual way to see works of art you might already be familiar with, plus the chance to see many more you might not have seen. A different kind of art experience but well worth it!
Sharon G. – Absolutely amazing! As always, Fever did not fail to deliver! I’m even thinking of a second visit 💚
Georgia G. – Amazing experience. Walking through the curtain into the immersive world of these two great Mexican artists was such an amazing experience.
Orinta K. – Brilliant experience. It was informative and personal at the same time. VR was a great addition to make it more exciting.
Oh, and there’s one more notable reason to visit, because Mexican Geniuses has had Rihanna‘s stamp of approval!
Beyond the art, you’ll also get your opportunity to visit Mexico on a unique VR experience, allowing you to explore the rich scenery and fascinating people that so inspired Frida and Diego. Putting on the headset will plunge you right onto the streets which fuelled their vibrant creations, sending you on a virtual journey which follows in the footsteps of the pair as you wander through striking environments. In fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if it gets you planning a trip to Mexico as soon as you’ve finished the exhibition… Don’t miss out before it’s gone next week!
