Annie Buckley: The People’s Tarot
Nov. 15, 2014 to Jan. 18, 2015
Artists’ Reception Fri. Nov. 14, 6 – 9 pm
This interdisciplinary and participatory project includes original collages, a tarot deck and guidebook, two print editions, and readings. Buckley began The People’s Tarot as a means of integrating more intuition into what felt like an increasingly analytical practice. She is familiar with the Tarot and has owned four decks over the years. She integrates meditation and research into her collage process to create a new deck with a humanist philosophy. Interaction and intuition are at the core of this project.
This artist-led project is designed to put art in viewers’ hands – literally, conceptually, and metaphorically. Readers/viewers use their own intuition in viewing the work and interpreting the cards. Participants can sign up for free readings during the opening night artists’ reception and Three Day Weekend events.
Buckley lives and works in Los Angeles and is also a contributor to Artforum.com and the Huffington Post. Visit Anniebuckley.com for more information about her work.
