This exhibiton was announced on the 15th of Agust 2018 by the Frist Museum (Nashville, Tenn. USA).

Frida Kahlo, Diego Rivera, and Mexican Modernism from the Jacques and Natasha Gelman Collection, showcasing celebrated works from one of the most significant private holdings of twentieth-century Mexican art, will take place in the Ingram Gallery from May 24th to September 2nd, 2019 (dates subject to change)

"With iconic works by Frida Kahlo, her husband Diego Rivera, and their contemporaries, including David Alfaro Siquieros, Rufino Tamayo, and Ángel Zárraga, this exhibition allows visitors to explore the Gelman Collection, one of the most significant private holdings of twentieth-century Mexican art. The husband-and-wife collectors Jacques and Natasha Gelman were glamorous and wealthy Eastern European refugees who married in 1941, took part in Mexico City’s vibrant art scene, and purchased art mostly from their artist friends. In this exhibition of more than 100 works are self-portraits by Kahlo, Rivera’s Calla Lily Vendor, and numerous portraits of the Gelmans, plus intimate photographs that give insight into how Kahlo and Rivera lived and dressed."
