Miradas de Mujeres (Women’s Gaze) is a dialogue between two women who share a love for fabric, patterns and colours; a women's perspective on the artist’s role in society.

Miradas de Mujeres (Women’s Gaze) is an exhibition that highlights the view of Isabelle de Borchgrave on Frida Kahlo, one of the most iconic female artists of the 20th century. 

It took Isabelle de Borchgrave almost three years to create Miradas de Mujeres, a titanic work painted by hand. By using more than 4 kilometers of paper and cardboard she created dresses, carpets, furniture, trees and other elements reproducing the unique universe of Frida Kahlo and her iconic house, the Casa Azul

The exhibition invites the public to dive into the joyful paper universe of Isabelle de Borchgrave and to be inspired by the generosity of this contemporary artist whose creative practice remains resolutely incomparable.

Join us for a unique guided tour of the exhibition with Isabelle de Borchgrave at the Royal Museum of Fine Arts.
