By means of  the representations of the legend of saint Georges, of which the fight with the dragon is among the most commonly used, this exhibition has the ambition to make us aware that the tradition of saint George and the combined historical knowledge offers us powerfull view into imagination. 

The exhibition saint George will show a selection of numerous paintings, sculptures, drawings,...which represented the saint in so many ways. it will examine the way saint George and the dragon show themselves through the eyes of our contemporaries, as a melting pot of differents batltes of mankind fighting hostile forces but also and maybe foremost man against himself in the confirmation of his destiny.

With works of among others Angel Vergara.
