Teatro Frida

By  |

As The New Yorker (bear up, Elizabeth!) has it, Frida Kahlo’s cult has all kinds of associations with the Days of the Dead, which are upon us – and her art holds up, too. “Her self-portraits cannot be overpraised,” writes Peter Schjeldahl. “They are sui generis in art while collegial with great portraiture of every age.” For a local take, check out Cora Cardona’s Teatro Dallas (scroll down) fundraiser this Friday night at the Latino Cultural Center. Cardona herself plays Kahlo in the film they’re showing.
