Tom Chamberlain at Drawing Room, London

Thinking Tantra

24 November 2016 – 19 February 2017

Includes Prabhakar Barwe, Tom Chamberlain, Shezad Dawood, Nicola Durvasula, Alexander Gorlizki, Goutam Ghosh, Prafulla Mohanti, Jean-Luc Moulène, Anthony Pearson, Prem Sahib, Richard Tuttle, Acharya Vyakul and Claudia Wieser.

An exhibition exploring Tantric drawings as sites of transformation, including artworks by contemporary artists and those from the Indian Neo-Tantra movement (1960s – 80s) alongside anonymous Tantric drawings.

A complex body of beliefs and practices, Tantra enables individuals to conjoin with cosmic forces and inhabit alternative dimensions. Famously introduced to the West by Ajit Mookerjee in his seminal 1967 Tantra Art, Tantric drawings have an unwritten history that is explored here for the first time.

Curated by Rebecca Heald with Amrita Jhaveri.
