Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: The Polish Context
Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera. The Polish Context will be Poland’s first and only exhibition devoted to Kahlo and Rivera, additionally enriched with the little known, yet highly compelling Polish context. As regards the latter, the show will explore the oeuvre of two Polish-born artists whom fate brought very close to Frida and Diego (Bernice Kolko and Fanny Rabel), as well as revisit the Exhibition of Mexican Art, held in 1955 in Poland, during which the works of Kahlo, Rivera and Rabel were displayed.
Until January 21st in ZAMEK Culture Centre in Poznan, Poland. More information in ZAMEK here
Las mujeres artistas y el surrealismo
We are Completely Free. Women Artists and Surrealism presents the work of a group of women artists who, from the 1920s onwards, became involved to a greater or lesser degree in Surrealism, a movement historically associated with men. Museo Picasso Málaga has brought together for the occasion works by eighteen spirited and rebellious female artists who were, in several cases, overshadowed by their male partners.
Until January 28th in Museo Picasso, Málaga, España. More info in Museo Picasso here

Until May 29th in the Hermitage Amsterdam, The Netherlands. More info here
In this unconventional series Botero, one of Latin America’s bestknown artists, remains true to his characteristically grotesque and “naive” figure style. As the wittily ironic title indicates, the group of works takes its cue thematically from the quintessential text on human sexual behaviour, the Kamasutra.
Until September 6th in the Forum Wurth, Roschach, Germany. More info here
For the first time in Germany, Marta Herford will be presenting 200 photographs from this collection which served Kahlo as a recollection, a source of inspiration and as working material.
Until May 10th in Museum MARTA, Herford, Germany. More info here
