Frida Kahlo is probably the best known female surrealist painter. She is one of nearly 50 women surrealists from Mexico and the U.S. featured in a new exhibition at LACMA.
The exhibit is called, "In Wonderland: The Surrealist Adventures of Women Artists in Mexico and the United States." Madeleine got an early tour with curators Ilene Fort and Tere Arcq as it was being installed.
The surrealist movement not only influenced modern art, but became a foundation for modern feminism. The women in it were especially drawn to Mexico and the U.S. because these places offered them the freedom to create. The curators take us through the highlights of the 175 works on display.
"In Wonderland" is on view through May 6 at LACMA.
