Frida Kahlo & Diego Rivera - Art Gallery of NSW - Review
Gelman Collection will be on display at the Art Gallery of NSW from Saturday 25th June to Sunday 9th art gallery of nsw Quoting Frida Kahlo - 'I have suffered two grave accidents in my life, one in which a streetcar knocked me down ... The other accident is Diego'. The Frida Kahlo and Diego Rivera: from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection exhibition recently opened at the Art Gallery of NSW and captures how Frida's work was influenced by traumatic physical and emotional pain that she endured in her life. Frida Kahlo - Diego on my mind (Self-portrait as Tehuana) 1943 - photo @busycitkids Frida suffered lifelong health problems many of which were caused by a tragic traffic accident she survived and spent months in hospital recovering from. She also suffered emotionally from her relation with Diego Rivera. This exhibition showcases her realistic painting style which was dominated by self portraits and the works of Diego Rivera with whom she was married with for almost ten years. Frida Kahlo - Frida Kahlo with red 'rebozo' 1939 by Nickolas Muray (on left of this image) - photo @busycitykids The Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection comprises of more than 30 artworks and 49 photographs. Diego Rivera - Landscape with Cacti 1931 - photo @busycitykids Many of Diego and Frida's work explored family, their relationship and their own personal and political struggles. Frida's training was more self taught and influenced by her father and later by Diego whereas Diego was academically trained. Frida Kahlo - Self-portrait with braid xxx 1941 - photo @busycitykids Frida Kahlo - Self-portrait with monkeys 1943 - photo @busycitykids Frida Kahlo - Self-portrait with necklace 1933 - photo @busycitykids Frida Kahlo - The bride who becomes frightened when she sees life opened 1943 - photo @busycitykids I really loved Frida's self portraits in this collection especially self portrait with monkeys and Diego on my mind. My favourite photographs are from her father's collection shown below c 1920. As well as photographs from American and Mexican photographers Leo Matiz, Martin Munkácsi and Nickolas Muray. Frida Kahlo - Taken by her Father Guillermo Kahlo - photo @busycitykids Frida Kahlo - various photographs from the exhibition's photographers - photo @busycitykids While the exhibition might not have interactive features for children and the exhibition space is intimate, art as I see it is a part of life and children should be exposed to it from a young age so that they can appreciate art and get used to galleries.

Colourwheel at the Art Gallery of NSW
Colourwheel at the Art Gallery of NSW On our recent visit to Sydney, little Miss and I visited the Art Gallery of NSW and headed straight down to lower level 2 to the contemporary galleries where we checked out the Colourwheel exhibition. Colourwheel celebrates the playful and dynamic ways in which modern artists have used colour. Inspired by the colour wheels used by scientists and artists to understand the mysteries of colour, the exhibition also invites viewers – especially children – to engage in some chromatic play and experiment of their own, with a lively colour trail and kids activity area. Little Miss had a quick look around the exhibition's paintings, videos, coloured food and tin sculptures and headed straight to the activity table where she was spoilt with choice with a few colour specific activities. Activities on offer were a colour-in activity where little ones were invited to colour in their own seagull, draw & colour-in their favourite food on a plate and use cut up coloured shapes to make their own little coloured paper sculpture. Children had to replicate the tin sculptures from artist Robert Klippel by using cut up pieces of coloured paper and display them once complete. Little Miss had a go but needed a bit of help with this activity. She did however enjoy colouring in her own seagull that she then hung onto the wall along with others. We spent several hours in the Art Gallery looking at contemporary art, the Matisse and the Moderns exhibition and many others. We had a spot of lunch at the gallery café which had really nice food and a special kids lunch pack for $15 which included an apple or orange Juice, a little homemade muesli bar, an apple and a harm, cheese & tomato sandwich. Some crayons and sheets of the Colourwheel plate colour-in activity were available for little ones to use during lunch. After lunch, little Miss wanted to go back to the Kids area for more Colourwheel fun, so we did! Colourwheel is on at the Art Gallery of NSW until May 29th 2016 and is FREE for everyone. For more info, go to: http://www.artgallery.nsw.gov.au/exhibitions/colourwheel/ We took the train to St James station and had a nice walk through the Botanical Gardens and the Domain before heading to the Art Gallery.
