1.What is your museum about and what is your work there?
The Frida Kahlo Museum, also known as the Casa Azul or Blue House, was Frida Kahlo’s residence for the better part of her life. It presents the environment and objects which inspired her, as well as some of her works.
The Museum also displays important works of folk art, pre-columbine sculpture, photographs, documents, books and furniture which belonged to Frida and Diego. I have the privilege of being General Coordinator of the Museum and leading the teams responsible for conservation, research and communication of this fabulous space.
