Ben Uri Gallery


After visiting a very interesting exhibition at Somerset House last year, Out of Chaos – Ben Uri: 100 Years in London, I decided to visit the actual Ben Uri Gallery which is located in north London.

The Ben Uri Gallery is an art museum focusing on the work of artists of Jewish descent. It also focuses on the universal themes within these artists’ work, such as identity and migration. The Gallery displays its materials in a programme of temporary exhibitions; the exhibition I saw, which has just ended, was entitled Rothenstein’s Relevance: Sir William Rothenstein and His Circle. It contained impressive works, many of which looked at the concept of Jewish religious worship; others were more traditional portraits or drawing room scenes.

I was surprised at how small the Gallery actually is: it consists of one small ground floor room and another, larger, basement space. Still, with free entry it is certainly worth popping in.
