Reflecting on Kahlo: Mirrors, Masquerade and the Politics of Identification

Oriana Baddeley is Dean of Research at University of the Arts London. Here she discusses part of the catalogue to the first ever solo show of Kahlo’s work in the UK at the Tate Modern. In addressing the changing nature of Kahlo’s reputation and impact Baddeley addresses the role of Frida Kahlo’s work and the construction of her persona within contemporary culture as in itself indicative of the complexities of the interaction of the national with the global.
