We are excited to announce the launch of the second edition of Hilma’s Ghost’s ABSTRACT FUTURES TAROT deck! If you are interested in purchasing an ABSTRACT FUTURES TAROT deck, please visit the Carrie Secrist Gallery website here.
As a kickoff event for the new edition, please join Hilma’s Ghost for a conversation between the co-founders, Dannielle Tegeder and Sharmistha Ray, on Hilma af Klint’s birthday, Tuesday, October 26, 3.00 – 4.30PM (EST). Tegeder and Ray will discuss the artistic process behind the creation of the ABSTRACT FUTURES TAROT deck and offer an inside look at their collaborative process. They will also be discussing other artists who have created Tarot decks, including Salvador Dali and Leonora Carrington. Additionally, they will be joined by professional witch and Tarot Reader Sarah Potter for a discussion on the rich history of Tarot, an explanation on reading Tarot, and how to use the ABSTRACT FUTURES TAROT deck.
The Eventbrite link is here. This session is free and open to everyone, but you must register to receive the Zoom link.
If you have the first signed edition, please bring your deck to this virtual session. If you are ordering the second deck, then this session will help you unravel the mysteries that await you.
