Frida -Viva La Vida is a cinematic documentary event film that highlights the two sides of Frida Kahlo’s spirit: a revolutionary pioneering artist of contemporary feminism, and on the other, a human being tormented by agony and love. With Asia Argento as narrator, the two faces of the artist will be revealed, by pursuing a common thread consisting of Frida’s own words: letters, diaries and private confessions. The documentary film event will alternate interviews with historical documents, captivating reconstructions and Frida Kahlo’s own paintings, kept in some of the most amazing museums in Mexico.

On view at LSU MOA now until August 30th:
Conspicuous: Satirical Works by Caroline Durieux
This exhibition focuses on satirical lithographs produced in the 1930s to the early 1950s by Caroline Durieux. While studying at Newcomb College, Caroline Durieux was exposed to the now famous theories of Thorstein Veblen, who coined the term “conspicuous consumption.” Durieux closely observed the behaviors of bourgeois circles in the United States, Mexico, and France and found patterns of consumption and leisure united the upper classes. Caroline Durieux translated the quirky, conspicuous behaviors she observed in Louisiana and abroad into the prints included in this exhibition.

About Caroline Durieux:
Caroline Durieux was born in New Orleans, Louisiana in 1896. She graduated from Newcomb College, worked with the Works Progress Administration, and later became faculty in LSU’s art department, where she researched electronprintmaking with radioactive inks and revived cliché-verre methods in addition to teaching and practicing traditional printmaking methods. LSU Museum of Artholds nearly 300 works by Durieux.
