The Ben Uri Gallery is a gallery of Jewish art in London. It is the only museum in Europe to be dedicated to Jewish art (rather than Judaica or Jewish history).
It was founded in the East End of London in 1915 by Lazar Berson to provide an art society for Jewish immigrant craftsmen and artists then unable to gain access to mainstream artistic societies due to anti-Semitism, and named after Bezalel Ben Uri (the craftsman who designed and built the Ark of the Covenant).
It has a large permanent collection, and is seeking a site in Central London to house and display this, but its present location is only large enough for temporary exhibitions such as its series of exhibitions on the 'Whitechapel Boys'.
The Museum will certainly try. Please put your enquiry, research interest and connection to the Ben Uri Collection in writing and write to us at 108A Boundary Road, London NW8 0RH. We will forward your enquiry to the most relevant person and respond to you within 15 working days. You can contact the Museum in the first instance using the online form.
