Ben Uri Gallery and Museum, engaging as, is the first full scale virtual museum and research centre. Conceived in 2018 and published within the 2019 Sustainability and Public Benefit Strategic Plan was ‘soft’ launched in September 2020.
In September 2020, after 20 months of content development, the first full scale virtual (art) museum launched encompassing: e.g. 40 exhibitions at any one time, 1400+ works fully searchable, 400+ artist biographies, 100+ reports from the Research Unit, 100+ films, 60+ podcasts etc and the Research Centre for the recording of the Jewish and immigrant contribution to British visual culture since 1900 alongside the Arts and Health Institute developing art interventions sourced from our collection. Ben Uri was founded by a Russian Jewish immigrant artist in 1915 in Whitechapel, London. It was the first British Jewish cultural institution and the centre of engagement for two waves of immigration - pre WWI from Russia and the second pre and post WWII from Central Europe.
