By BBN Staff: Last night, the National Institute of Culture and History (NICH), the San Ignacio and Santa Elena House of Culture in collaboration with the Mexican Embassy in Belize opened the photographic exhibit: “ Diego y Frida Una Sonrisa A Mitad Del Camino”.

Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera were two of Mexico’s most captivating and provocative artists who had a relationship that never failed to amaze and astonish. Diego was one of the Giants of the Mexican Mural Nationalistic School that painted the Mexican walls of the most diverse public buildings. Frida chose another way of expression, less social and historical, more about her mind , her dreams, her suffering, the internal woman.

Present at the event was Diego Sapien, the Cultural Attache of the Mexican Embassy in Belize.

Sapien told BBN that the exhibition comprises of 86 reproductions of the life of Diego and Frida loaned to them from the Institute of fine arts from Mexico.   “ The photographic exhibition tells us the story about Diego Rivera and Frida Khalo and it tells us their relationship as artists, and it tells their story from the human parts of artists. It is very important for us to have this exhibition here in Belize,” he added.

Sapein further explained that Diego and Frida are an important part of Mexican History.

They both had incredible talent and vision, but Diego’s work would be more public and monumental, whereas Frida’s work was more personal and intimate in scale.

Diego and Frida’s paintings are highly appraised and respected and Mexicans and art enthusiasts around the world continue to appreciate their esteemed works of art.

The exhibition will be in San Ignacio until May 25, 2018.
