See powerful works by 50 international artists including Frank Auerbach, David Bomberg, Marc Chagall, Chaïm Soutine and Alfred Wolmark, which address the universality of migration and resulting issues of identity and belonging.

Drawn from the collection of the Ben Uri Gallery, London, the works span more than a century. They range in style from traditionalism to modernism and encompassing examples of Impressionism, Expressionism, Vorticism and Social Realism, as well as embracing media from painting to contemporary photography, film and installation.

A Ben Uri Partner exhibition.

Read about David Bomberg, Picasso and the Whitechapel boys in this informative blog by curator Sarah Richardson.

Out of Chaos – art that makes you think is Sarah’s third blog, revealing background stories to some of the impressive contemporary and historical art in the exhibition.
