Focuses on the couple’s work in the 1930s boom-town motor-city and Kahlo’s increasing adoption of traditional Mexican dress and symbolism in her work as a reaction against the American city’s elite. Around 70 works are on display, including eight of Rivera’s preparatory drawings for his Detroit Industry mural, and 23 pieces by Kahlo.
