EventOpening Day: William Blake and the Age of Aquarius
CityEvanston
PlaceBlock Museum of Art
Address40 Arts Circle Drive
DetailsThe Block Museum exhibition, William Blake and the Age of Aquarius kicks off with an opening day program including a conversation with Northwestern University Professor of Art History and exhibition Curator, Stephen Eisenman and W.J.T. Mitchell, Blake scholar, editor of “Critical Inquiry” and Gaylord Donnelley Distinguished Service Professor of English and Art History at the University of Chicago. The talk will explore Blake’s role within his own time, his influence on countercultural American artists and musicians of the 1960s and the ways in which Blake’s independence, imagination and resistance to authority continues to resonate in contemporary life. About the Exhibition: William Blake and the Age of Aquarius will explore the impact of British visionary poet and artist William Blake (1757-1827) on a broad range of American artists in the post-World War II period. This exhibition will be the first to consider how Blake’s art and ideas were absorbed and filtered through American visual artists from the mid-1940s through the 1960s when Blake became a model of non-conformity, individuality, and resistance to authority.
