The exhibit called, Correspondencias… Archivos y fondos del Cenidiap, is a collection of 177 facsimiles, 57 photos, two short films, and a soundbite of an interview with Rivera. The name was inspired by a letter that Frida signed with a kiss.

Diego Rivera y Frida Kahlo were Mexican two artists who had their own set of drama. The couple married twice, Diego cheated on Kahlo with her sister, and Frida had an affair with Soviet political Leon Trotsky.
