Tarot Show 

When: Sat., July 19, 7-10 p.m. 2014
Since roughly the year 1540, tarot cards have been used for entertainment and divination across the world. Scads of full decks and/or Major Arcana have been designed for purposes of self-expression, political allegory, feminism, humor, sexology and even plain old beauty. This weekend, Last Projects Gallery's "Tarot Show" opens up the format a bit, with a host of contemporary L.A. artists taking on the tarot, whether as a matter of individual cards or as a symbol of magical thinking and secular occultism. Artists working in an array of styles from the pop surrealist to the conceptual, and with varying degrees of reverence for the paranormal, include Seth Styles, Lisa Ingeles, R.K. Shuquem, Elena Brocade, Anthony Ausgang, Victor Balogh, Michael Dee, Scott Lawrence, Amanda O'Connor, Olivia Beall, John Ciulik, Jasmine Bazzi, Phillip Haut, Nico Zurita and Jason Lynn. Whether you're a fool or a high priestess, or somewhere lost in all those cups and swords, there's no denying that art and magic make for a colorful future. Last Projects Gallery, 6546 Hollywood Blvd., Ste. 215, Hlywd.; Sat., July 19, 7-10 p.m.; free. (323) 356-4225, lastprojects.org.
