Sat 6th Nov: NYC "Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project,"
Stacy Engman (contemporary art curator at The National Arts Club) has curated a group project of creatives to conjure up a totally new deck of Tarot Cards . In the past, various artists have had a go at their own version of the pictorial deck including Salvador Dali and Niki de Saint Phalle. Here is Stacy wearing a special Philip Treacy hat - one of the featured artists you can see above. I also snapped Nick Knight's card as it was so impressive and really captured the essence of the concept - painting in blood! Stacy selected 78 iconic creatives of our time to compile this unique collection of iconography including:
Agathe Snow, Catherine Opie, Christian Louboutin, Gareth Pugh, Inez Van Lamsweerde & Vinoodh Matadin, Jake & Dinos Chapman, Karl Lagerfeld, Kenny Scharf, Marc Jacobs, Nan Goldin, Knick Knight,m Philip Treacy Ryan McGinley, Ryan McGinness, Steven Klein, Terence Koh, Terry Richardson, threeASFOUR, Tim Nble & Sue Webster, Tracey Emin, Vivienne Westwood, Yayoi Kusama, Yoshitomot Nara......
