Last week in London, V&A unveiled one of their most intimate exhibits of Frida Kahlo’s life to date, “Frida Kahlo: Making Her Self Up.” As the famed Mexican artist and icon’s birthday quickly approaches, admirers flocked over to experience the immersive minimal rooms, curated with Kahlo’s most personal possessions. With good reason too, since this marks a rare occasion. Her items have been bound to Mexico for years!

Curators Claire Wilcox, Circe Henestrosa, Gibson Thornley, and Tom Scutt have carefully designed an intimate view into the life of Frida Kahlo through her possessions and paintings. With a series of minimal rooms, led in by a glowing azure hallway, explores topics touched within her portraits. From exhibiting her political views through her clothes to the beds that reference her lifelong disabilities, each room captures a distinctive aspect from her life.

Below are some Instagrammers capturing their favorite parts of the exhibit.
