Appearances can be deceiving

Striking pink and blue displays handmade in Huddersfield by large-format specialist Leach, are now gracing the iconic Brooklyn Museum in New York, which is celebrating the works of the inspiring Mexican artist,Frida Kahlo with an exhibition entitled: Frida Kahlo: Appearances Can Be Deceiving

The exhibition, which includes paintings, photographs, film,plus personal artefacts from Frida Kahlo’s home, is the largest homage to the artist to be staged in the US for 10 years.

The entrance to the museum features two ultra-illuminated pink and blue lightboxes, each of which measures 3.4-metres wide by 2.5-metres tall and is designed to provide the wow factor, even before visitors have stepped inside the exhibition.

Leach, part of the Chargeurs Group, a global manufacturing and services brand with a philanthropic Foundation that is committed to fostering intercultural dialogue and access to culture, health and education, was commissioned by Anne Pasternak, the Shelby White and Leon Levy Director at Brooklyn Museum.

She said: “We would like to thank Chargeurs for its generous support of this vital exhibition. The stunning Leach-designed lightboxes at the entrance truly set the stage for a magnificent visitor experience.”

Tom Foster, Project Director from Leach added: “We’ve worked on some incredible heritage projects across the globe and adding the Brooklyn Museum to our roster of clients is very exciting indeed.

“The Museum houses one of the nation’s most comprehensive and wide-ranging collections, spanning 5,000 years of creativity from various cultures worldwide, and it’s amazing to think that displays manufactured by our own creative technicians are now welcoming visitors to this world-famous venue.”

The Frida Kahlo exhibition will run until 12th May 2019.
