Occasioned by the recent discovery, in India, of 21 of these original gouache illustrations, Intention to Know: The Thought Forms of Annie Besant presents a complete series of framed prints from the first edition of Thought Forms alongside Danish artist Lea Porsager’s gouache paintings inspired by the book. Archival material from Besant’s life and times, including an intact first edition of Thought Forms, is presented alongside work by two contemporary artists, Erin Hayden and Cauleen Smith.
The exhibition is drafted by Carolyn Christov-Bakargiev in alliance with Theaster Gates, presented by the Rebuild Foundation, and made possibly by the generous support of Rebuild’s individual and institutional funders. Special thanks to Elif Kamisli, the Theosophical Society in America, and the Theosophical Society, Adyar.
