Warholian and Modern Eden Gallery have come together in to present “Tarot: Art of Fortune” a
modern day reinterpretation of the classic intuitive “fortune telling” card deck. The show
features some of the best emerging names in the gallery scene today as curated by Warholian’s
founder Michael Cuffe.
Although it’s roots may seem occult, Tarot was originally developed as a pack of playing cards in
15th century Europe to play French Tarot or Italian Tarocchini. Over time, individuals in the
intuitive and early psychic communities began to adopt the cards as use as a tool to “read” an
individual and offer spiritual guidance. Today Tarot has become more widely accepted as a way
for individuals to ﬁnd direction in the bustle of a modern world. With the availability of decks
ranging from artistic to commercial, tarot has become a personalized standard of home libraries
For “Tarot: Art of Fortune” we’ve asked some of the top contemporary artists to reimagine their
favorite card from a standard deck, into a work of art based on the imagery and symbolism
present. “Tarot: Art of Fortune” features an amazing array of established artists that have been
individually selected as important ﬁgures in emerging art movements at this time.
