Multi-media exhibition at Hungate Medieval Art takes a modern look at Norwich’s history

A new multi-media exhibition which aims to link Norwich’s heritage with contemporary art is to open in the city this month.

Journeys Through the Light is being presented at Hungate Medieval Art, based at the redundant St Peter Hungate church in Princes Street. The show will focus on artists’ responses to the qualities of light as it travels through medieval stained glass, and it is being described as a “lively dialogue” in which artists engage with the venue’s historical setting.

The show is being put together by Hungate Contemporary 2012 – a team of University of East Anglia masters students all studying either museum studies or cultural heritage. They are Abigail Dear, Virginia Choy, Laura Iseli, Elizabeth Bergeron, Bridget Eaton and Rachael Murphy.

Miss Dear said: “Norwich has got so much magnificent heritage. Our aim is to promote the heritage and to bring the contemporary art crowd into the setting of some of the magnificent architecture of Norwich.”
