Intention to Know explores the life and work of Annie Besant, a feminist activist, revolutionary thinker, and pioneer of modern abstract art theory. With Thought Forms, a book co-authored by Besant and Charles W. Leadbeater, as its centerpiece, the exhibition surveys the life and legacy of Besant and the Theosophical movement that influenced her thinking….
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.
