Background: The “KahloRivera100” exhibition is courtesy of the Consulate of Mexico in Dallas in celebration of its centennial (1918-2018) of providing services to the Mexican community and building bridges and prosperity with North Texas society.
The exhibition is in partnership with University of North Texas Latina/o and Mexican-American Studies, Women’s and Gender Studies, the Multicultural Center, the Department of Dance and Theater, and UNT on the Square.
The exhibit was initially organized by the National Institute of Fine Arts in Mexico in 2007 to celebrate the 100th anniversary of Kahlo’s birth and the 50th anniversary of Rivera’s death.
The exhibit features works from some of the 100 renowned graphic designers. The artists are members of the Alliance Graphique Internationale, a member-based association of graphic design professionals from around the world. They were each asked to design a poster as an international visual homage to the iconic couple, Kahlo and Rivera. “KahloRivera100” examines the passion, resentment, adoration and pain that define Kahlo’s and Rivera’s complex relationship.
