Swapnaa Tamhane has been closely studying the Indian performance artist Rummana Hussain (1952-1999). Her research developed into the large group exhibition In Order to Join — The Political in a Historical Moment, exploring an international generation of women artists born between 1947 and 1957. This exhibition was held at Städtisches Museum Abteiberg Mönchengladbach, Germany, and Gallery MMB, and Chatrapati Shivaji Maharaj Vastu Sangrahalaya, Mumbai, India from 2014 to 2015. Swapnaa has exhibited at FOCUS Photography Festival, Mumbai; Art Gallery of Mississauga; Gallery Seven, Delhi; and A Space Gallery, Toronto. Her book, Sar: The Essence of Indian Design (Phaidon Press, 2016), curated with fashion designer Rashmi Varma, explores the history of material culture and memory.
