Tonight, Last Rites Gallery opens the doors of its brand new location for the reception of Tarot Under Oath – guest curated by Aunia Kahn. Aunia previously curated the LowBrow Tarot show at La Luz De Jesus in LA – which was incredible – so I’ve been looking forward to seeing what kind of new interpretations these artists will bring to the Major Arcana of the Tarot. The show has a good mix of talented artists, who all bring a different style and approach to their depictions of the Tarot.
Artists include: Lori Field, Julie Zarate, Aunia Kahn, Tom Bagshaw, Vincent Castiglia, Jasmine Worth, Dilka Bear, Jeremy Hush, J.A.W. Cooper, Bec Winnel, Melissa Hartley, Craww, Jared Joslin, Gustavo Rimada, Ransom & Mitchell, Scott Scheidly, Brian Despain, Jason Levesque, Tatiana Suarez, N.C. Winters, Sarah Joncas and Lara Dann. The exhibition will coincide with the release of a companion art book of the same title, featuring the artwork, artist statements and more.
Last Rites has always been one of my favorite exhibition spaces to see art in NYC, and I can’t wait to see what the new location on W. 38th ST looks like. You can check out the online preview of the show here, but if you’re in the NYC area you can view this amazing show in person from Jan. 25th – March 1st.
