Presenting a speculative history of Tantric drawings


This international exhibition presents a new understanding of how Indian art has influenced Western cultural traditions such as abstract art.

Thinking Tantra begins with anonymous Tantric drawings dating from the second half of the 19th century, then continues with works by Indian artists who directly associated themselves with Tantra in the 1960s, 70s and 80s, concluding with work by international contemporary artists, who know Tantric drawings and make a connection to their own ways of working including: Tom Chamberlain, Shezad Dawood, Nicola Duvasula, Goutam Ghosh, Jean-Luc Moulene, Anthony Pearson, Prem Sahib, Richard Tuttle and Claudia Wieser.

The exhibition is a collaboration between Rebecca Heald, Drawing Room and Amrita Jhaveri, Jhaveri Contemporary. This is the exhibition’s only stop outside London and Mumbai.

A History Centre partnership project delivered by Peninsula Arts in partnership with Plymouth City Council (Arts & Heritage).
