How can I donate an artwork to the collection?

Thank you for thinking of us. All donations are carefully considered by the Collections Committee. Send Ben Uri photos of the work in question together with information on its provenance, condition and dimensions. Please write to us at 108A Boundary Road, London NW8 0RH.

It is recommended that a catalogue of the work if previously exhibited be sent with your proposal. Our Collections Committee meets quarterly to review all proposals and will respond to you in writing of their decision.

How can I propose an exhibition to Ben Uri?

If you have an idea for an exhibition, please send a hard copy proposal, CV and any relevant information to the museum for the attention of the Exhibitions Committee. The committee meets quarterly to review all proposals. We will let you know their decision in writing. Please contact us or write to us at 108A Boundary Road, London NW8 0RH.

Are you able to value a work of art for me?

No, Ben Uri is a museum and we do not undertake evaluations.

How large is the Ben Uri Collection and what is on display?

The collection consists of nearly 1300 artworks. Sadly, the collection sits in a museum storage facility due to the limited space available at the museum’s current location. You can browse some 400 images from the permanent collection in the online gallery in Collection and data is available on all works.

Each year we draw on the Ben Uri collection for our varied exhibitions programme. Join our mailing list to be kept abreast of what’s coming up.
