May 8 – August 11

TheCentre Pompidou in Paris is mounting a show commemorating theanniversary of its founding as the most prominent state-owned museum ofmodern art in France, titled "Traces du Sacrxc3xa9." The show opens to thepublic on May 7 in Gallery 1, and runs until August 11. The curatorshave assembled a wide-ranging exploration of spirituality andesotericism in Europe and America in last century, drawing on their ownholdings as well as those of other institutions and collectors aroundthe world. The Warburg Institute has kindly loaned four newly-restoredThoth Tarot paintings by Aleister Crowley and Frieda, Lady Harris: TheHigh Priestess, The Hermit, The Moon and The Aeon. One important,previously unknown Aleister Crowley oil painting will be included inthe "Great Initiates" section of the show, kindly loaned by the ownerof the group of paintings that form the second Palais du Tokyo show(discussed in detail below, this show runs concurrently with the CentrePompidou show for a month from June 5). Also on view will be Cameron’sremarkable large-scale portait of Jack Parsons, "Dark Angel" — allpart of the curatorial take on the "Lucifer Rising" mythos of KennethAnger. Also featured are works by Harry Smith, Jordan Belson and manyothers influenced directly or indirectly by Crowley and his students.Of course the overall context of the show, including Arp, Brancusi,Chagall, De Chirico, Dali, Dix, DuChamp, Giocometti, Goya, Kandinsky,Klee, Kupka, Miro, Mondrian, Munch, Picasso, Warhol etc. etc., isbreathtaking. That Crowley should be included with these artists in aretrospective — one that takes into account the incredibly influentialspiritual and artistic undergrounds — is groundbreaking. Acomprehensive catalog will be available for purchase. After Paris, asmaller group of works (that will not include the Crowley-Harris Thothpaintings) travels to Munich.
