Vancouver is about to be graced with an inspiring new exhibit about one of art history’s most important figures

Frida Kahlo: The Immersive Biography, a co-creation of the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, will open at the PNE Agrodome on Wednesday, May 3, 2023, for a limited run.

The state-of-the-art exhibit is presented by Tandem Expositions and utilizes seven distinct transformational spaces and an optional award-winning VR experience.

“Frida Kahlo’s artistry continues to be more relevant than ever, and this immersive exhibition is a must-see for anyone who admires her work and legacy,” said Paul Dupont-Hébert, president of Tandem, in a release.

The immersive experience is brought to us by the organizers behind Imagine Van Gogh, Imagine Picasso, and Imagine Monet events across Canada and the US over the past three years.

Guests will explore the life and artistry of the influential Mexican artist in a unique and immersive way.

Unlike other exhibitions, The Immersive Biography will not include reproductions of Kahlo’s iconic paintings. Instead, visitors will discover historical photographs, original films, digital environments, artistic installations, collector’s items, 360-degree projections, and newly created music at the PNE Agrodome.
