At Whitfield Entertainment Group Studios (Inc. at 1900 W Place NE, Washington, D.C., 20018), the couple’s work comes to life in unparalleled ways. “Mexican Geniuses: A Frida & Diego Immersive Experience” uses the latest video-mapping technology to brings Frida and Diego’s paintings to life — a spectacle featuring over 300 awe-inspiring projections where every brushstroke serves as a testament to the Mexican painters’ incredible relationship and artistry.
3 eclectic sections will plunge you into the world of Frida and Diego. Upon arriving at the experience, the immersive room will take you for a ride through the Mexican geniuses’ most iconic paintings. Light and sound swirl together as their mesmerizing paintings envelop the walls in a 360-degree video technology. Throughout the exhibit, you’ll gather more knowledge on the Mexican artists’ art and life: from Frida’s corset and wheelchair to special recreations of paintings and props, the artists unveil themselves to you like never before — forging new perspectives on their mind and dreams.
Frida and Diego’s works are replicated in such realistic ways, you’ll feel as though you’re actually a part of them. An immersive VR-experience will transport you to Frida and Diego’s Mexico where you’ll travel to the afterlife and celebrate Dia de los Muertos as their multisensory paintings bend and stretch around you.
And this new venue makes for the ideal location to take in Frida and Diego’s work, since parking is available on site and Rhode Island Ave-Brentwood is the nearest train/metro station. Tickets start at $36 for standard admission with bundle and VIP options available.
