This pop up exhibition is the perfect warm up to the V&As coming exhibition on Frida Kahlo. Upon entering you come into a small room covered in green flowery wall paper.- this makes the perfect selfie sight and is a gorgeous representation of what Khalo's living room may have looked like. You then enter a room that is sort of like a dining room. It's covered in striking yellow and fantastic blue with cacti, origami and ceramic pots, setting the scene for Kahlo's parlor. This exhibition is clearly very well thought out and offers a really nice insight into Kahlo's home life.
