The ORACLES Gallery 12 display by artists YARA + DAVINA transforms the space into an Oracle Card reading room, inviting visitors to seek advice and wisdom from a bespoke set of oracle cards inspired by Dulwich Picture Gallery’s collection.
Drop into the Gallery for a moment of reflection.
About Oracle cards
Oracle cards are tools for contemplation and are not designed to predict one’s future, instead they encourage us to listen to our intuition. These cards have been made by artists YARA+DAVINA, who strive to create collaborative, bold, playful and thought-provoking public art. They take inspiration from the Gallery’s collection of historic paintings, and were developed through creative conversations with local community groups in Southwark, Lambeth and Lewisham. The cards offer thoughtful provocations for self-reflection.
YARA + DAVINA will be giving free card readings on select Sundays during the run of this display.

ORACLES is part of our audience-led research project 'The Past for the Present', which connects the local community with our collection, to find new ways for historic paintings to speak to our lives today.
