Presentations will take place via the video conferencing app ZOOM. Please register in advance in order to access the program.

Rose Director, Chief Curator, and scholar Gannit Ankori will present images and ideas related to the brilliant and influential Mexican artist Frida Kahlo, focusing on the Rose Art Museum’s current exhibition: Frida Kahlo: POSE. Kahlo was of her time, deeply immersed in the issues that dominated the first half of the twentieth century. Yet, as this lecture will reveal, she was also ahead of her time. Through her multiple modes of creativity, she challenged social norms. Kahlo broke taboos, addressing themes such as the female body, gender, cross-dressing, hybridity, identity, disability, and trauma—in ways that continue to inspire contemporary art and culture across the globe.

Presented by Dr. Gannit Ankori, Henry and Lois Foster Director and Chief Curator, Rose Art Museum, Brandeis University.
