Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project

March 15, 2013 – May 12, 2013

Regardless of one’s take on psychic readings – Dalí 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 Dalí museum store also sells a complete deck of Dalí Tarot Cards (78 cards) for $145.This special exhibit was on display in the Museum’s Raymond James Community Room

If someday I may die, though it is unlikely, I hope the people in the cafés will say, ‘Dalí has died, but not entirely.’ – Salvador Dalí
