Join us for Member and Donor Preview Days at the de Young to view Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving before the museum reopens to the public. The exhibition examines how politics, disability, and national identity influenced Kahlo’s diverse modes of creativity. The exhibition features highly personal items that came to light in 2004 at her lifelong home, La Casa Azul (now Museo Frida Kahlo) in Mexico City, alongside paintings and drawings that span Kahlo’s career. Together they illuminate the complexities of Kahlo’s iconic self-fashioning and her bold and uncompromising art.

Timed tickets for this event are now sold outGeneral Admission tickets are still available to view Uncanny Valley: Being Human in the Age of AI and the permanent collection at the de Young. Members and their guests receive sole access to view Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving every Wednesday throughout the run of the exhibition.
