Frida and I ?at Centre Pompidou

Art Exhibition on Frida Kahlo

“In a poetic circuit that can be followed in any order, various fun set-ups immerse them in the work and life of the celebrated Mexican artist. Through her self-portraits ? used to trigger the imagination of small visitors ?, children are encouraged to think about identity, cultures and the perception and representation of the self, as they create, seek and observe in hands-on situations.

Children will gain insights into Frida?s life, her work and the marvellous, colourful world of Mexico through themes they can relate to, like ?my family and I?, ?my self-portrait?, ?nature?, ?my pain?, ?my travels? and ?my friendships?”

Took my little tiger this weekend and we were very impressed with the set up and the interactivity of the whole thing.
