In this 2 part series, Stephanie Dueñas and Russell Shoemaker discuss Frida Kahlo’s and Diego Rivera’s time in Detroit, Michigan - a moment in time that proved to be a turning point in both of their artistic careers as well as their personal lives.
You can find all the images we discuss on artslicepod.com or on instagram @artslicepod
Frida’s chronic pain, sudden loss and heartbreak, combined with the disillusionment of the USA during her time in Detroit. All the while, she’s soaking in everything and discovering she is a woman of complex identities, leading us to “Self-Portrait on the Borderline Between Mexico and the United States”. Our Art Pantry of the week is Metal (Painting).
