Join a representative from Plymouth Museum and Art Gallery who will discuss the exhibition, which features works by Indian artists from the 1960s, 70s, and 80s including Prabhakar Barwe, Prafulla Mohanti, Sohan Qadri, G.R. Santosh and Acharya Vyakul, as well as contemporary artists such as Claudia Wieser.

The drawings are in the tradition of the tantric art of the 1700s and 1800s, which used not only drawings but also rituals, sculptures, maps and chants to create a sense of transcendence.
