Nobody ever called Frida Kahlo an asshole, though, in 1939, the Mexican artist dubbed André Breton and the European surrealists the "bitches of Paris." Oh, snap! Frida existed to paint, and only then was the "Dove" allowed to fly free and depict her dark reality of surgeries, miscarriages, and self-medication. Our local Frida boosters, the Phoenix Fridas, salute the late, great Magdalena Carmen Frida Kahlo y Calderón on the occasion of her 102nd birthday. Party favors include panel discussions, art, and musical performances inspired by Kahlo's work and life.
