Ben Uri is the country’s leading digital and physical art museum and research centre focussing on the lives, careers and contribution of Jewish and immigrant artists to Britain since 1900. The museum collection is extensive and owing to limited space at the gallery is vast majority in store with only a fraction on display. This is one of the many reasons for Ben Uri transforming its principal public engagement to digital across many different platforms.
All our collection and over 30 exhibitions are on-line, within this web site, for your review and enjoyment.
Every year at least 4 exhibitions and associated events are presented at the gallery. Please see ‘Whats on’ for details of current shows.
