An immersive experience honoring one of modern art’s most influential figures is coming to Brooklyn. Located within the Immersive Pavilion at 261 Water Street in Dumbo, Frida Kahlo, The Immersive Biography will transport guests into the life and work of the inspiring Mexican artist through a series of virtual reality experiences and “transformational spaces,” according to a press release. Tickets can now be purchased for the experience, which officially debuts on October 27.
The exhibition will showcase the story of Kahlo, whose work continues to inspire creatives to this day. Her story will be told through a collection of digital art, historical photographs, projections, and installations that will be reproduced through virtual reality experiences in seven separate interactive rooms over the course of 90 minutes.
The immersive exhibition was created by the Frida Kahlo Corporation and Layers of Reality, a digital art center in Spain. The exhibit is being brought to Brooklyn by Primo Entertainment and Loud and Live after success in five cities throughout North America and Europe. It will continue to tour the United States after its residency in Brooklyn.
Tickets start at $38.99 for adults and are free for kids ages four and under.
The Frida Kahlo exhibit is just the latest immersive art experience coming to New York City. Earlier this month, art museum Hall des Lumières opened in Lower Manhattan with an inaugural exhibition featuring the works of Gustav Klimt. Last year, two temporary digital art shows highlighted the post-Impressionist works of Vincent Van Gogh.
