Frida & Diego: Love & Revolution Exhibition | Grieve Gillett Architects

The design of the exhibition Frida & Diego: Love & Revolution reflects the passion of the artists and their love and their beliefs, as encapsulated by their artwork.

The design is unashamedly bold and stimulating and pays homage to Frida and Diego’s life in art and in the artistic community they constructed around themselves. As designers, our aim is to reflect the story of the artists by means of a carefully considered exhibition design and to enrich the connection between an artist’s works – in this instance, Frida and Diego and some of their contemporaries – their story, the viewer and the space.

With no Australian gallery owning works by either Frida Kahlo or Diego Rivera, this momentous exhibition offered Australian audiences access for the first time to such a comprehensive collection of paintings, photographs, clothing and illustrations by Frida, Diego and other Mexican modernists.
