On View: “Tarot Under Oath” Group Show at Last Rites Gallery

While not everyone regularly submits themselves to tarot readings, the symbols of The Major Arcana served as the basis for New York-based Last Rites Gallery's current show, "Tarot Under Oath," an exhibition dynamic enough to inspire even the skeptics. Guest curator Aunia Kahn, who has released several tarot-inspired exhibitions and projects, invited the artists to reimagine the tarot card symbols. Kahn herself got The High Priestess, while Jeremy Hush interpreted The Chariot, J.A.W. Cooper's theme was Strength, Tom Bagshaw got the Ancient Babylonian Goddess of Love and War, Ishtar, and Ransom & Mitchell titled their work Temperance. The exhibition is on view through March 1. Take a look at the artworks in the show after the jump.
