World-Class Contemporary Art

Mexico City is a hidden gem of a destination. I tell everyone that the Condessa neighborhood combines the sophistication of Paris with the energy of Rio de Janeiro but no one believes me.

And there’s culture. Mexico City is home to more museums than any other city in the world. I’m most partial to the Museo de ArteModerno (Museum of Modern Art) located in the Chapultepec Park (the largest city park in the Western hemisphere), and was especially drawn to this painting, Las Dos Fridas (by Frida Kahlo, of course). Creepy, fascinating, I stared at it for a good ten minutes. So much symbolism! What does it all mean?

I conducted a little research (Google) and discovered that the Frida on the left—the one with the bleeding heart—is the Frida who was rejected by Diego Rivera. The Frida on the right—with the intact heart—is her other personality, the one he loved and respected.

Damn men. Always breaking our hearts.
