Event description

Description

ABOUT Join us for an evening of free professional development for all K-12 educators: in-service and pre-service teachers, educational aides, administrators, and librarians.

Using the UNM Art Museum exhibit, Frida Kahlo - Her Photos, as a starting point, the workshop will examine the commonalities and differences in Kahlo's own depictions of herself and how others portrayed her. In doing so, we draw attention to questions about an artist's ability to control his or her own representation. Poses, facial expressions, clothing, symbols. These were but a few of the details that came to shape Kahlo's (self)representation in photography and paintings. In the latter half of the evening we will add literature and writing to our discussion. Drawing on Kahlo's own diary and books written about her, we will deepen our understanding of Kahlo's sense of self in comparison to the myth that has developed in the wake of her death.

Certificates of professional development will be given and dinner will be provided.

SPONSORS This workshop is organized by the UNM Latin American and Iberian Institute and UNM Art Museum in collaboration with the Instituto Cervantes of Albuquerque, National Hispanic Cultural Center, and Spanish Resource Center of Albuquerque. It is supported by the US Department of Education Title VI.
