Artists and curators taking part in Drawing Room's exhibition programme are invited to compile ‘reading lists’ that inform and expand the themes explored in their work.  This list has been compiled for Everything We Do Is Music, a major new exhibition that explores how Indian classical music has inspired modern and contemporary artists. Titles marked with an asterisk * are held in Outset Study.
