Enter the World of the Frida Kahlo the Immersive Biography
Frida Kahlo was an iconic artistic force who still continues to inspire. Her life, art, and work are fascinating as she endured an accident at a young age that propelled her to a world of art. During a recent visit to “Frida Kahlo, The Immersive Biography,” we had the chance to literally be immersed into her world via a 90-minute interactive journey to explore the artist’s life through seven transformational spaces complete with 360 projections, virtual reality, historical photographs, and more.
Produced by the Frida Kahlo Corporation, Layers of Reality, Primo Entertainment, and Loud And Live, the “Frida Kahlo, The Immersive Biography” features a self-guided walk through experience where guests learn more about Frida and her multi-facted life.
This includes a mix of art and multi-media features where guests can read detailed biographies about her life, art, and work. Then, we were guided to different rooms, learning about Frida and her art, fashion, along with various Instagrammable moments along the way.
There is also a fun room called La Rosita where guests are invited to pause and color. Using technology, the image that was colored gets projected onto a screen, revealing a cool immersion of technology and art that can be shared on social media or printed.
After that room, we walked into a huge space covered in screens, revealing Frida’s photographs and original films. It was a beautiful look at her life that was mixed with technology and art.
One of our favorite parts of the experience was the Virtual Realty moment where we enjoyed an 365-degree eight-minute show. This part of the experience was so much fun as we were greeted by Frida herself who sang and took us into her world. This included a look at her home, her town, and stimulated skulls and watermelons. While this part is an additional cost, it’s definitely worth the experience that leaves you literally feeling like you are in Frida’s world.
A beautiful journey into Frida’s life, Frida Kahlo the Immersive Biography gave us an incredible opportunity to look beyond the surface of her world-famous artwork and get to know the woman who overcame hardship, created beauty from pain, broke boundaries, and who continues to inspire today. The exhibition will tour across the country before continuing onward to Latin America later this year.
