Time Out says

The British Museum's major exhibition for spring 2020 is devoted to the Tantras, sacred Indian texts from the 6th century that shaped the meditational and devotional practices of Tantric Hinduism and Buddhism. Since their dispersion, Tantric writings have had a dramatic impact on the major religions of South Asia, even inspiring revolutions. They continue to inform the philosophies and practices of people today, having been reimagined as a means of breaking convention. This exhibition will include over 100 objects, including sculptures, art installations and manuscripts.
