Some of the highest achievements of modern Mexican art will soon be on display to European eyes in Paris, as the Musée de l’Orangerie prepares to host the major exhibition ‘Frida Kahlo/Diego Rivera – L’art en fusion’, from 9 October 2013 13 January 2014:

The exhibition will include works by both Frida Kahlo, probably the most important woman artist of the 20th century, and her fellow painter and twice husband, Diego Rivera. A preview can be found in the October 2013 number of the magazine Connaissance des Arts (pp. 56-62). This will be a event raising the profile of Mexican art in Europe, not to be missed!



Algunos de los mayores logros del arte moderno de México se revelarán dentro de poco al público europeo, en París: el Musée de l’Orangerie se prepara para recibir una exposición de envergadura, ‘Frida Kahlo/Diego Rivera – L’art en fusion’, entre el 9-X-2013 y el 13-I-2014:

 La muestra incluirá obras tanto de Frida Kahlo, probablemente la más importante artista femenina del siglo XX, y su dos veces marido, el también pintor Diego Rivera. Una vista previa del evento se encuentra en el número de octubre 2013 de la revista Connaissance des Arts (págs. 56-62). ¡Este acontecimiento, que seguramente ensalzará el perfil del arte mexicano en Europa, será, absolutamente, no de perder!

India at centre of EUROPALIA festival in Brussels, Oct 2013-Jan 2014

India will be the centre of attention in the cultural world of Brussels, in the EUROPALIA arts festival, this year dedicated entirely to India. The festival will be based in Brussels (with events elsewhere in Belgium and acrosss the border in France and Holland,) and will run from 4 Oct 2013 to 26 Jan 2014.


See the Europalia website: for details of
exhibitions, concerts, lectures, etc. Exhibitions will include ‘The Body in Indian Art’, ‘Indomania: from Rembrandt to the Beatles’ and ‘Ramayana: Miniatures from the National Museum of New Delhi’ (all in Brussels). I have witnessed earlier Europalias and can vouch for the festival’s high standards – it will really be worth a special journey!
