Artistic revolutions don’t come around all that often, but when they do, they have the power to change how we see the world. Just one artist managing this is impressive, but when a daring duo inspire one another to ever greater heights, you end up with unmissable art – and that’s exactly the case for Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera, two of Mexico’s greatest ever painters. Their work captures beauty, love, and deep emotions, and you can see their paintings come to life at dazzling art exhibition Mexican Geniuses: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience. This never-before-seen exhibition has transformed Dock X in Canada Water into a spell-binding world of art, and tickets are still available – but be quick as the exhibition closes on September 28.
If you want to experience works that changed the face of Latin American art, you’re going to want to book tickets immediately for Mexican Geniuses: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience. Exploring the lives, loves, and legacies of these incredible artists, the exhibition makes use of over 300 art projections, ranging from the minute to the monumental, all of which will envelop you in a flurry of colour and sound.
The experience blends 360-degree projection technology with a state-of-the-art sound system to immerse you in art, and make you feel as if you’ve stepped inside a painting. It’s the first time that the works of Frida and Diego are being displayed with immersive light technology, which is sure to give you a brand new perspective on their playful, provocative, and moving paintings.
As you move through the exhibition, you’ll learn more about the life and careers of the iconic artists, and how their relationship influenced each other’s work. You even have the chance to explore the rich scenery of Mexico on a unique VR experience, which definitely isn’t to be missed! The impact of Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera’s works are still felt today, and in exploring this jaw-dropping immersive show, you’ll discover the world and the dreams that influenced them both, not only through the hyper-realistic paintings, but through workshops, panels, and guides too.
Mexican Geniuses: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience can be found at Dock X in Canada Water, transforming the extensive space into an artistic wonderland bursting with the light and colour of their paintings. What are you waiting for? There’s only a week left to see it!
