Editor's Choice

Marking two significant anniversaries with an emotive exhibition, Migrations: Masterworks from the Ben Uri Collection will combine paintings, drawing and sculpture at Museum of Gloucester.

A poignant exhibition about the story of refugees is being held at the Museum of Gloucester from Wednesday 2 October 2019 to Tuesday 28 January 2020.

Entitled Migrations: Masterworks from the Ben Uri Collection, the exhibition is being presented jointly by Ben Uri Gallery and Museum in London with Gloucestershire Action for Refugees and Asylum Seekers (GARAS).

Migrations will mark both the 20th anniversary of GARAS and the introduction of the Kindertransport, which brought 10,000 Jewish refugee children to Britain between 1938 and 1939.

Combining paintings, drawings, sculptures and prints from the Ben Uri Collection, the pieces will explore three waves of migration to Britain: between 1880 to 1910, when immigrants of principally Jewish Eastern-European descent settled in London’s East End; the so-called ‘Hitler-émigrés’ between 1933 and 1945; and more contemporary migration too.
