New Exhibition: Autonomic Tarot 

New Exhibition Autonomic Tarot is the product of a collaboration between writer, David Keenan and artist, Sophy Hollington

The pair have combined forces to create a linocut tarot deck that retains an umbilical to the card’s archaic roots, yet future-visions it as a glam-punk portal deep into the Now. The deck accompanies (and was born from) Keenan’s experimental novella To Run Wild In It and both will be published by Rough Trade Books this summer.

Original prints of the tarot artwork by Sophy Hollington will be on display at The Social from 1st June – 24th July.
