In honour of Refugee Week, Ben Uri Gallery and New Art Studio celebrate "our shared future" through a partnership of refugee and asylum seekers' artwork. Contrary to common belief, asylum seekers are not allowed to work and receive just £36.95 a week in food vouchers. The paired works in this exhibition, from Ben Uri's collection and the New Art Studio, reflect the resilience and sensitivity of the migrant's story: one of loss and hope.
