Frida Kahlo Candid Exhibit in Wynwood

Frida in the Sun, By Leo Matiz

Business partners Mali Parkerson and Valentina Garcia are in a very good place. The two have recently opened m+v ART, a gallery space that provides artist management and art advisory services, and are inaugurating the space with a bang. The space will host an exhibition of never-before-seen photographs by prolific Colombian photographer Leo Matiz of artist Frida Kahlo.

Leo Matiz spent 60 years behind the camera before his death in 1998 at the age of 81. He spent years chronicling Latin America, the Middle East and other locations around the world as a photojournalist for the United Nations, Life magazine and many Spanish-language publications, earning accolades and exhibitions throughout his long career. He would eventually be recognized by the Colombian government as the country’s most important photographer of the 20th century.
