Review - Unexpected: Continuing Narratives of Identity and Migration

My latest exhibition review for the Church Times is of  'Unexpected: Continuing Narratives of Identity and Migration' at the Ben Uri Gallery:

'One way in which we can know something of those who are “other” than us is by way of their visual stories. The Ben Uri collection explains the history of the Jewish émigré community through traditionalist and modernist vocabularies that frame the artists’ “forced journeys” from Russian pogroms and the late Nazi persecution and genocide in Europe.

Ben Uri is saying, through community art projects (involving Oxford House) and this shared exhibition, that our story is also your story. As a result, this exhibition pairs paintings and sculpture from the collection with contemporary pieces by artists who work with Counterpoints Arts to create fertile artistic dialogues.'
