28 SEPTEMBER - 3 NOVEMBER 2013
ANTI - ANGELS:
THE MEDIEVAL OTHER
To mark the end of a season of celestial artwork. Hungate Medieval Art presents an exhibition exploring contemporary interpretations of medieval demons, monsters, gargoyles and other such creatures.
Much medieval art depicts the saintly and angelic, however in marginal locations such as roof-tops and on the edges of manuscripts, other more subversive creatures can be found.
In this exhibition contemporary artists have responded to these medieval beings using a variety of media, to produce a variety of sinister, foreboding and often comic works.
Opening times: Saturday 10am-4pm,
Go to the WHATS ON page for details of a series of events beginning with CONVERSATION WITH THE ARTISTS on 4th October.
Based in the 15th century church of St. Peter Hungate, Hungate is a centre for medieval art located in Britain’s most complete medieval city, Norwich.
Hungate is run by a charity - Hungate Medieval Art. We exist to promote both the medieval art visible in the County of Norfolk (through exhibitions, research and an events and learning programme) and contemporary use of medieval art, approaches and buildings.
Hungate is open to the public every Saturday, 10am-4pm, and Sunday 2-4pm, from March to October. Group visits are available at other times.
Come and visit us!
Brass Rubbing available every weekend
£4 per session: All welcome
100 ANGELS FOR HUNGATE
Hungate Medieval Art is currently seeking 100 Angels in Norwich to give a donation of £100 in order to secure our 2013 season. We are reaching out to local companies and individuals to give a commitment of just £100 in order for us to put on a programme of 4 exhibitions and support numerous local outreach programmes in 2013. For each £100 donation we will be filling a square of our Angel, with a company logo or name, to create a unique piece of art which we will be exhibiting in the entrance to Hungate and on our website, as a testament to the support of the local community.
