From the Globe and Mail:

An exhibit focusing on Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera is headed to the Art Gallery of Ontario.

“Frida & Diego: Passion, Politics and Painting” is set to arrive at the gallery in the fall and will include 75 key works from the renowned 20th-century painters.

Drawn mostly from the collection of Mexico’s Museo Dolores Olmedo, it examines the lives of the artists both together and apart, as well as their politics.

The gallery says the selected paintings also reference the couple’s support for the Communist movement and identification with their Mexican roots.

The exhibit, set to run from Oct. 20 to Jan. 20, 2013, is a collaboration with the High Museum of Art in Atlanta.
