Auguries of Modern Innocence



This exhibition features a 21st century spin on William Blake’s classic poem Auguries of Innocence. In keeping with Blake’s legacy as a poet, painter and sometime prophet, eight graphic and comic illustrators— Dan Wong, Jerry Teo, Neo Ann Gee, Chen Yan Yun, Brenna Tan, Caleb Tan, Russell Ong, Wu Yanrong, Arthur De Laforcade and Kari Kaiju—have come together with poet Marc Nair to write and illustrate a modern version that depicts the world in all its dystopian glory.

Drop-in Workshop: 10 Mar, Sat | 2.30pm – 5.30pm

ModBlake is an interactive ekphrastic experience that showcases the artistic process behind Auguries of Modern Innocence. In this drop-in workshop, participants will modernise a fragment from one of William Blake’s poems together with Marc Nair. They will then bring their modernised verse over to an illustrator, who will work with them to create a customised drawing on the spot.
Participants will be able to take their newly minted artwork home for a
minimum donation.

(Walk-ins are welcomed, subject to available space)

Artist Talk: 17 Mar, Sat | 4pm – 5.30pm

Join poet Marc Nair and artists Dan Wong, Neo Ann Gee and Caleb Tan as they discuss modern innocence and the collaborative process in the making of the exhibition and the book.
