    Ben Uri has long been committed to touring its exhibitions (to some 30 cities across 3 continents) and sharing its collection with colleague institutions across the UK and abroad.



    We currently have 30 physical exhibitions, including our current presentation, Art Identity and Migration, on the Touring Exhibitions Group website (, which are available for physical tour with the original artworks, or for those colleague institutions where security and insurance costs are problematic, we recommend reproductions. The full list is detailed below but for further details please see and email your interest to with the Subject line 'BU Exhibition Loans'.



    Here is our new digital reproduction offer: This is a new venture for the programme, emerging from the success of our current 40+ exhibition presentations in 3D and Classic format on We are very happy to share these exhibitions with colleagues as part of your digital engagement. We currently generate over 100 times as many digital engagements than physical. Please review on the Exhibition pages of this website ( and email your interest to with the Subject line being 'BU Virtual Exhibition Loans'.


    We have two principal museum collections: Pre-eminent (some 100 art works) and Core (some 750 art works) and all are fully digitised, with full artist biographies, and searchable across many fields including country of birth. The collection is rich in quality and diversity, reflecting and exploring the Jewish, refugee and immigrant contribution to British visual art since 1900. Highlights include fine examples by Auerbach, Bomberg, Epstein, Gertler, Herman, Kossoff, Pissarro, Rosenberg, Schwitters and Wolmark alongside European-based émigrés including Chagall and Soutine. All works, unless committed for Ben Uri exhibitions or agreed loans, are available to enhance colleague institutions' exhibitions and displays in this post-pandemic period.
