From July first to the 7th of November – Tina, another Frida – Hundertwasser Museum
They both lived during the Mexican Revolution, a most troubled and thrilling period; they both had a love affair with a great artist (Diego Rivera and Edward Weston), were themselves great creators and very strong women, and both died very young. It is obvious all that Frida Kahlo (1907-1954) and Tina Modotti (1896-1942) had in common. The exhibition concerns the latter, the Italian photographer from Friuli, with her famous images of flowers, her portraits and her series (on the women of the Isthmus of Tehuantepec). The superb Tina was also an actress in silent movies and the model for other photographers. While Weston’s shots are well known, in particular his nudes, most of us will discover the images of her youth showing the determination of the young emigrant who sold hats in California before becoming the darling of Mexico’s intellectuals…
