Frida Kahlo: a female icon

  • Wednesday 17 October 2018
  • Brockway Room, Conway Hall, 25 Red Lion Square, London WC1R 4RL
  • Lecturer: Dr Jacqueline Cockburn

To accompany the exhibition at the V&A, Frida Kahlo: making herself up, this study day will consider her troubled and fascinating life in Mexico, her relationship with Surrealism, her intimate diaries and her contemporary, artist Remedios Vara. It will end with her wardrobe, jewellery and artefacts, and a discussion about the way she did indeed ‘make herself up’.


Dr Jacqueline Cockburn is a course director and lecturer at the V&A and also lectures at The Royal Academy, the Art Fund, Artscapades, the London Art History Society, The Arts Society and a number of private institutions. Jacqueline is Managing Director of Art and Culture Andalucía. She has recently published A Taste of Art, London (Unicorn Press, 2019).
