David Breuer-Weil’s maquette for Visitor (2010) can be seen as part of Out of Chaos, Ben Uri: 100 Years in London, at Somerset House. Breuer-Weil’s work will be exhibited amongst Jewish masterpieces. This centenary exhibition showcases a group of rarely seen masterworks by mainly Jewish émigré artists which will go on show from the Ben Uri collection, including works by the first Jewish Royal Academician, Solomon Hart, Mark Gertler, David Bomberg, First World War poet Isaac Rosenberg, Jacob Epstein, Max Liebermann, Josef Herman, Frank Auerbach, Leon Kossoff and R B Kitaj. The exhibition will launch an innovative interactive digital archive, Our Story, Your Story, collecting stories from visitors of their experiences within London’s constantly evolving émigré communities and the contribution that they have made to the City in successive generations.
Ben Uri Gallery and Museum is the oldest Jewish cultural organisation in the UK. It is the only art museum in Europe whose raison d’etre is to address universal issues of identity and migration through the visual arts.
The exhibition is on display until 13 December 2015 at Inigo Rooms, Somerset House, Strand, London, WC2R 2LS.
