Join VocalEyes describer Lonny Evans and the exhibition curator for a tour of Tantra: enlightenment to revolution.
Tantra is an ancient philosophy and set of practices originating in India that privileges the feminine and opened up new ways of seeing the world as a source of limitless power; it transformed South Asia’s major religions, challenged society’s norms, inspired revolution and, from the 20th century onward, has been re-imagined as a means of liberating society from convention.
