The extent of Frida Kahlo's influence in the art world, apart from her signature unibrow, is widely known. Her graphic self-portraits portray her psychological and physical self, usually accompanied by lots of blood and body parts. The MCA is honoring her memory by displaying several works inspired by Kahlo's style of rebellion and cultural reflection through four main themes: the performance of gender, issues of national indentity, the political body, and the absent or traumatized body.
