Arish Ahmad Khan -- better known as King Khan -- has always taken care to incorporate striking visuals into his live shows. While performing with The Shrines and The King Khan & BBQ Show, Khan dons outrageous costumes and engages in sometimes scandalous behavior.
The garage rocker -- now two decades into his music career -- takes his artistic skills off stage this winter. He's teamed up with Chilean filmmaker Alejandro Jodorowsky and Belfast designer Michael Eaton on a new art exhibit that's coming to the University of Colorado's Colorado Springs campus.
"The Black Power Tarot" is a collection of tarot cards created by Khan that features 26 images of notable African-Americans. Subjects include musicians Andre 3000, Billie Holiday and Curtis Mayfield. Each is assigned a different "role" in the tarot deck.
The exhibit opens Jan. 13 at UCCS's GOCA 121 gallery (1420 Austin Bluffs Parkway, Colorado Springs) with a live tarot reading event and talk from Khan. It runs through April 1.
