This summer Ben Uri Gallery & Museum will celebrate its centenary year with the exhibition ‘Out of Chaos; Ben Uri: 100 Years in London’, exploring one hundred years of émigré history through its eminent art collection, looking to forge future conversations about the relationship between immigration and art.
Amassed over one hundred years of exhibiting and supporting Jewish émigré artists, Ben Uri’s 1,300-strong art collection is recognised worldwide as offering important works from artists living and working in London, as well as internationally.
‘Out of Chaos’ will be displayed at Culture at King’s College London in their gallery in the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House East Wing. It will showcase works usually hidden from view, illustrating the experience through artists who worked in London, including David Bomberg, Jacob Epstein, Mark Gertler, Leon Kossoff and Frank Auerbach, alongside their international contemporaries, including Marc Chagall, Chaïm Soutine and Georg Grosz.
