VANCOUVER, BC – Mon., April 3, 2023 – The Frida Kahlo Corporation, Layers of Reality, and Tandem Expositions are thrilled to announce the Western Canadian premiere of the world’s only official exhibition of Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography opening Wednesday, May 3, 2023 at the PNE Agrodome in Vancouver. Tickets go on sale Tuesday, April 4, at 10 am PDT through TicketLeader.ca and fridakahlovancouver.com.
Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography, a co-creation of the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, the renowned digital arts centre in Spain, presents the biographical story of the life and artistry of one of the most influential artists in history in a unique and immersive way. The exhibition utilizes seven distinct transformational spaces, including an optional award-winning VR experience, enabling visitors to enter the life and work of the Mexican artist, Frida Kahlo. Unlike other art exhibitions, this exhibit does not include reproductions of Kahlo’s paintings. Instead, it utilizes a range of innovative techniques, including historical photographs, original films, digital environments, artistic installations, collector’s items, and newly created music, to create an immersive experience that captures the essence of Kahlo’s life and art.
“Today, the Frida Kahlo brand is considered one of the most significant and renowned on the planet, which has enabled us to venture into new cultural and commercial projects with a global, innovative, and disruptive approach, similar to how Frida lived her everyday life. Consequently, we aim to create a space that portrays Frida Kahlo in an authentic, genuine, and comprehensive manner, incorporating diverse sources of information. This has given rise to Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography,” states Beatriz Alvarado, CCO and Head of Global Trends, Frida Kahlo Corporation.
“Frida Kahlo’s artistry continues to be more relevant than ever, and this immersive exhibition is a must-see for anyone who admires her work and legacy,” said Paul Dupont-Hébert, President of Tandem and who is also behind the success of Imagine Van Gogh, Imagine Picasso, and Imagine Monet across Canada and the USA over the past three years.
After unprecedented success in Spain and across Europe, the exhibition toured the US and made its Canadian debut in Montreal before arriving in Vancouver. Produced by Montreal-based Tandem Productions, Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography is designed to be an unforgettable experience for visitors of all ages.
