ISTANBUL.- Between 23 December 2010 and 20 March 2011, the Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera from the Gelman Collection exhibition introduces to art lovers two of the most outstanding, globally renowned Mexican figures of 20th century art: Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera.

Generating wide interest as much with their unique characters, life stories, and intriguing relationship, as with their oeuvre, the two artists are welcomed in Turkey for the very first time in an exhibition of more than forty of their works displayed at Pera Museum.

Collectors Jacques and Natasha Gelman spent a significant portion of their lives in Mexico; the works included in the couple's extensive collection, which also encompasses 20th century Mexican art, include the most outstanding Frida Kahlo self-portraits, which reflect the profound traces of her artistic personality, as well as rare examples of Diego Rivera's canvas paintings. This globally acclaimed collection was previously presented to audiences through a limited number of exhibitions outside of Mexico.

Apart from the most favored Kahlo works of the Frida Kahlo Retrospective organized in Berlin and Vienna in 2010, the exhibition at Pera Museum also includes Diego Rivera's paintings. The works of Frida and Diego, who inspired the motion picture and literary worlds with their oeuvre and unconventional lives, can be visited at Pera Museum until 20 March 2011.

Since its inauguration in 2005, Pera Museum has become one of the most distinguished, leading and popular museums in Turkey over a short period of five years through its permanent exhibitions of the Suna and İnan Kıraç Foundation collections, national and international exhibition projects as part of its collaboration with the foremost art institutions in Turkey and abroad, as well as the production of books, catalogues, audio-visual events, educational and film programs.
