The DIA welcomes three important works by Frida Kahlo (Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo) and Salvador Dalí (Albright-Knox Art Gallery, Buffalo, and Eli and Edythe Broad Art Museum at Michigan State University, East Lansing), presented alongside photographs from the DIA’s collection, documenting the artists’ imaginative, larger-than-life personae.

The presentation of Kahlo’s contribution to female self-portraiture and Dalí’s engagement with illusionistic image is located immediately adjacent to Diego Rivera’s Detroit Industry murals (1932–33). It explores how the two iconic artists produced their own forms of expression, creating surrealist worlds of subjectivity, myth, dream, mirage and magic.  

Take a close look at exhibition highlights, accompanied by interpretive labels, and images of the other works in the exhibition.
