Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project
Regardless of one's take on psychic readings - Dali painted his own set of Tarot cards and his wife Gala read Tarot
Cards during their soirees - there's no denying that the mysterious history and imagery of Tarot cards is ripe for
interpretation by contemporary artists.
Guest Curator Stacy Engman asked today's most dynamic artists to submit new works based on the Tarot. The result is
an amazing collection of seventy-eight must-see magical works of art. A variety of artists were commissioned including
Ultra Violet, Andres Serrano, Francesco Vezzoli, Nan Goldin, and designers Christian Louboutin, Karl Lagerfeld, Marc
Jacobs and Vivienne Westwood.
This salute to Tarot exhibition has traveled to other locations, including the Warhol Museum. Guest Curator Stacy Engman
is Chief contemporary curator to the National Arts Club in Gramercy Park, New York City. This exhibition consists of the
original artworks on paper; sized 7 x 10 inches (17.78 cm x 25.4 cm).
The Dali museum store also sells a complete deck of DalÝ Tarot Cards (78 cards) for $145.
This special exhibit is on display in the Museum's Raymond James Community Room Friday, March 15 - Sunday, May 12, 2013
