Holy Madness: Portraits of Tantric Siddhas
NEW YORK  •  Rubin Musem of Art  •  Ongoing

This exhibition surveys the art and legends of some of the most colorful characters in South Asian and Himalayan civilization, a group of men and women called siddhas, meaning those who are spiritually accomplished. Some were considered degenerate misfits because of their outlandish behavior, while others had common occupations, such as monk, weaver, or farmer, and hid their extraordinary abilities until the right moment.

Portraits of these holy men and women are rendered in paintings, sculptures, and photographs drawn from museum and private collections worldwide.
