Sigils & Signs

Signs and sigils are the written language of magic.

They’re found carved into runes, holy manuscripts, and sculptures. They’re emblazoned onto buildings, encoded into paintings, and hidden under clothing as tattoos and jewelry.

And of course, there’s plenty to be found in Tarot cards.

As a lover of all things mystical, I can’t help but be fascinated by the written characters used for magic. That’s why the show Sigils & Signs at Brooklyn’s Observatory sounds so fascinating.

Over a dozen artists have come together, each using occult symbols from various traditions and times to explore what it means to be a magician in the modern age.

They’re looking at their work not only from an aesthetic perspective, but also from a magical one. It’s not just an art show, but a collection of ‘wall spells’ intended to transform.

The opening night reception is Friday, April 27th. The show runs through June 17th. See it if you can.
