View Over 800 Frida Kahlo Artifacts & Artworks In This Stunning Online Exhibit

Google Arts & Culture has partnered with museums from all over the world to put on the ultimate Frida Kahlo exhibit.

What if you could experience all of your favorite Frida Kahlo works in just one place and without even leaving your couch? Thanks to the Google Arts & Culture online exhibit, “Faces of Frida,” you’ll get to experience over 800 pieces by and of the artist in what might be her most epic exhibition yet!

The site has partnered with 33 museums and other institutions from across seven countries to bring you an expansive exhibit that not only includes the works of Kahlo herself, but also items from private collections and rare artifacts that aren’t usually displayed at exhibits including her journals, letters, clothing and other personal possessions.

Twenty ultra-high resolution images created using Google’s Art Camera and five Street View tours will take you on a journey through the places that made an impact on her career, including the “Blue House” where Kahlo spent most of her life in.

Thanks to an enhanced Street View experience, you can also take in some of the highlights on display at Frida Kahlo Museum and check out the “I Paint Myself” exhibition from your computer or phone. All you need to do is tap on an a piece at the bottom of your screen to see how it looks on the wall and click through to learn about the piece itself.

The exhibition also features works by other artists that either feature Kahlo as their subject or have been heavily inspired by Kahlo’s legacy. These include an incredibly wide variety of works, all the way from photos of a young Frida taken by her father to works by her husband, artist Diego Rivera, as well as a unique performance by the English National Ballet which draws upon the artist’s life and work.

The all-encompassing exhibit about the Mexican artist is a digital Frida Kahlo paradise. You can view “Faces of Frida” on Google Arts & Culture’s website.
