An Interior for William Blake

What would Blake’s house be like if he were alive today?

1 - 14 August 1994

17 South Molton Street

Blake’s last surviving London Residence

To celebrate the bicentenary of Blake’s

Songs of Innocence and of Experience 1794

The House of William Blake is commissioning contemporary artists to decorate Blake’s original lodgings in a way which best expresses Blake’s curious spirit today. The exhibition will include the work of those in the fields of furniture design, poetry, kitchen ware, textiles, bathrooms, book binding, printing, engraving and cake-making, among others. A catalogue to accompany the exhibition will be available from late July. Most exhibits will be for sale and some may be eaten. The exhibition will commence with a private view and press launch and will then be open to the public (by guided tour). The House will also be putting on some children’s summer holiday workshops during the exhibition period. For further information, please contact: Lottie Hoare or Tim Heath, The House of William Blake, 17 South Molton Street, London W1Y 1DE, tel. 071-495-5654.
