All of these pieces will be prominently displayed at the High’s exhibition. In addition, Hector Esrawe and Ignacio Cadena have designed reading rooms that examine the ways Kahlo’s and Rivera’s work continues to influence Mexican artists. These two designers are renowned within the contemporary Mexican art community and look to provide the exhibition with present-day continuity.
