The Ben Uri Story
Our story begins on 1 July 1915 in London’s East End when Russian-Jewish émigré Lazar Berson and like-minded local artists and craftsmen formed a society to nurture art and creativity.
For the next 100 years, it’s a story of art, identity and migration and an art collection of 1,300 artworks that need a new home
We're celebrating our centenary year with exhibition Out of Chaos; Ben Uri: 100 Years in London. This exhibition explores one hundred years of émigré history with masterpieces from our art collection, looking to forge future conversations about the relationship between immigration and art.
