Legendary Mexican jazz artist Tino Contreras is set to perform a unique streamed show in the most beautiful space in Mexico City – Frida Kahlo’s home, the Casa Azul, which is also home to the flagship museum dedicated to the iconic artist’s life and work. The globally streamed event will be the first ever music stream from the Frida Kahlo Museum, and is a celebration of both Contreras’ dynamic contribution to jazz and his 97th birthday.
Inside the Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as the Blue House, the artist’s personal belongings are exhibited, as well as memories of the life that she lived there with Diego Rivera. Original paintings by Kahlo, Rivera and their friends; a collection of Mexican folk art, handicrafts, pre-Columbian pieces and Mexican regional textiles; as well as photographs, documents, books and furniture are all showcased. The beautiful garden is an essential part of the Blue House, and crossing it leads to the internationally acclaimed exhibition of Frida Kahlo's dresses. Many of the items in the museum were exhibited at London’s Victoria & Albert Museum in 2018, for ‘Frida Kahlo: Making Herself Up’, which was one of the most successful temporary exhibition in the museum’s history, and seen there by 284,420 visitors.
