This is Ben Uri’s second exhibition in its series on refugee and migrant artists, highlighting the Polish contribution in Britain over the last century. This focus is particularly apt as the community approaches its millionth citizen, the largest migrant group in Britain and, as next year, Poland celebrates a century since it regained its independence as a nation state after 123 years. The exhibition presents narratives of the Polish community in Britain, and Poland's recent turbulent history, through the lens of art. It traces complex stories of Polish-born artists who fled successive regimes, were variously persecuted, imprisoned and interned, crossed continents – or, today, have made positive choices to come to Britain to study or to develop professionally.
