The exhibition features work by interdisciplinary artists and creative icons such as Terence Koh, Tracy Emin, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Richard Phillips and more
For the first time, there is a rare opportunity to collect work from the important artists and creative masters in this special exhibition that has been shown in esteemed institutions including the Andy Warhol Museum, Salvador Dalí Museum and Virginia MoCA, amongst others. The print series features an array of work by today’s most iconic visionaries in interdisciplinary fields from around the world, such as Tracy Emin, Terence Koh, Karl Lagerfeld, Christian Louboutin, Richard Phillips, Agathe Snow and James Turrell, amongst others. Each artist was matched with a specific Tarot card based on archetypical themes that his or her work references and each interpretation incorporates the artist’s iconography and corresponding themes in his or her artwork. The auction will benefit the traveling exhibition and support the placement of an anniversary print edition in the permanent collection at the Andy Warhol Museum where the show debuted and was featured alongside the Velvet Underground Tarot Cards film by Andy Warhol, and the artist’s own Tarot Deck.
The acclaimed traveling exhibition, Contemporary Magic: A Tarot Deck Art Project, will release prints from the show and will be offered exclusively on Paddle 8. The auction opens on http://www.paddle8.com at 12PM on October 29 and closes at 12PM on Friday, November 13.
Bios of the artists and actual Tarot card readings will be available on the first art exhibition video game app, enabled by notable game app maker, DOTS (the makers of the popular game Dots and TwoDots), in a pioneering collaboration with Engman. The app is free, and is available in iTunes for download on any apple device. Please see the attached tutorial:
