Development of a Round 1 Application to NLHF for Ben Uri

 

ben-uriClient: Ben Uri, the Art Museum for Everyone

  • A registered museum, the Ben Uri is the only specialist Jewish Museum of art in Europe
  • With a permanent collection of over 1300 works including masterpieces by Chagall, Bomberg, Grosz and Auerbach it represents the major avant-garde movements and encompasses a broad range of 20th century modern British artistic groups
  • Situated in small temporary premises in North London the museum is currently looking for a more suitable long term home
  • Needed help to develop a Round 1 Application to NLHF for a major Central London temporary exhibition and related public programmes

 

Project: 100/100: Exploring Art, Identity and Migration through the Ben Uri Centenary Exhibition

  • A major temporary exhibition at the Inigo Rooms, Somerset House (Kings College, London) in summer 2015 to celebrate centenary of the Ben Uri
  • Ambitious programme of community and public engagement with the stories and themes of the exhibition exploring issues of art, identity and migration
  • Enhanced digital interpretation and collections access through redeveloped website, virtual exhibition, new resources and on line activities
  • New volunteering and intern opportunities
