OPENING SATURDAY 28 SEPTEMBER
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.
28 September - 3rd November 2013
Opening times: Saturday 10am-4pm,
