Outrageous Fortune Art Show

If you’re anywhere near Southend-on-Sea, Essex, UK, you might want to get down to this Tarot show.

Outrageous Fortune is a collective Tarot deck created by 78 different artists and curated by Andrew Hunt.

Each artist randomly drew one card from a Marseille deck, and were asked to interpret what they saw. They saw all sorts of things, and came up with a diverse mix of formal, conceptual, Expressionist, literary and design-based approaches to making their own cards.

If you can’t get there, you can see some of the cards on-line. And maybe if you’re lucky, the show will be coming to a town near you.

It opens today at Focal Point Gallery in Southend-on-Sea, Essex, and will be there until August 27. Then it hits the road to tour the UK through January 2012.
