Due to logistical issues and impossible time constraints, the Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography exhibition will not be able to make it to Vancouver this May as originally planned. Anyone who has purchased tickets to the exhibition can be refunded at point of purchase or through TicketLeader at ticketleader.ca.
This spring, Vancouver will once again experience an immersive look at a world-renowned artist. The Frida Kahlo Corporation, Layers of Reality, and Tandem Expositions have announced the Western Canadian premiere of the world’s only official exhibition of Frida Kahlo. Tickets go on sale for Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography, today, April 4, at 10 am at TicketLeader.ca or fridakahlovancouver.com.
Opening May 3, 2023 at PNE Agrodome, Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography, is a co-creation of the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, the renowned digital arts centre in Spain. The immersive experience 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 (pictured above) 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.
