Sounds strange, no? Order up those tacos!
As part of her sprawling retrospective at the Brooklyn Museum, which runs until May 12, Mexican artist Frida Kahlo has over 100 artworks on view for her show, Appearances Can Be Deceiving, which explores the iconic artist’s life and work through clothing, personal items and key paintings.
But that’s not all, as the museum is also teaming up with local chefs that cook Mexican cuisine: Carlos and Felipe Arellano of Park Slope’s Chela; Justin Bazdarich of Greenpoint’s Oxomoco; TJ Steele of Sunset Park’s Claro; and Sue Torres, a TV personality and consultant.
Alongside Saul Bolton, a Michelin-starred chef and executive chef of The Norm (the museum’s restaurant), these partner chefs are creating special Mexican dishes inspired by the life and work of Kahlo throughout the duration of the exhibition.
So when you drop by to see the exhibit, be hungry.
