Celebrate Friday the 13th by having your fortune told by artist John Walter with his very own artist-made and 'queered' tarot cards. Drop in anytime between 4:00pm - 6:00pm. 

John Walter works in a range of media including drawing, painting, performance, video, music and sculpture. His installations are grounded in theoretical and empirical research, and they seduce visitors into engaging with complex and often uncomfortable subjects such as sexual health through his exuberant use of colour, humour and hospitality. Walter creates fictions that begin with his personal experience and quote the voices of others, weaving them together into new epic works. The term ‘Maximalist’, which best describes his work, refers to an additive practice that values the relationships between things rather than their qualities in isolation. Walter’s work is visually intricate, returning to specific lexicons of imagery such as tarot cards, which allow meanings to develop within multiple contexts.

These tarot cards came from a body of work by Walter called Alien Sex Club

John Walter is part of Gus Fisher Gallery current exhibition Queer Algorithms
