Explore Frida Kahlo’s inner circle of female friends and their creative work. During a period of competing male nationalistic narratives in post-revolutionary Mexico, Frida and her friends created powerful alternative narratives of love, motherhood, friendship, solidarity, and national identity. Discover how these artists created political and cultural dialogues for themselves, Mexican women, and the wider world in the early decades of the 20th century.
