Is Frida Kahlo at the MFA? Debatable 

I’d hate to ever write anything bad about the MFA, seeing as that’s basically my second home. But, they’ve disappointed me. In fact, they even tricked me into thinking they had multiple works by Frida Kahlo. That, my friend, is a lie. At this new ongoing exhibition, Making Modern, they have one Frida Kahlo painting.

Viewing Democracy Through Art

Meleko Mokgosi: Democratic Intuition @ ICA The 2016 presidential election has understandably become “the thing to talk about.” Everything from Facebook posts to Snapchat-live ‘stories’ have been overtaking the internet.
