In 1978 San Francisco's Galería de la Raza presented Homenaje a Frida Kahlo: El Día de los Muertos, a special Day of the Dead exhibition honoring Kahlo. At this program co-organized by the gallery, the artists who curated and contributed to the show discuss this key moment highlighting Kahlo's achievement. They examine how Kahlo's reputation shifted across the 1970s and 80s, and how they responded to her life and work. Romo moderates the conversation.
