Founded in 1994, Ubu Gallery has presented almost 100 exhibitions of 20th Century avant-garde art, with an emphasis on the inter-war period of the 1920s-1930s, particularly the Dada, Surrealist, and Constructivist movements. Ubu exhibits paintings, drawings, photography, sculpture, and ephemera (books, posters, graphic design, etc.) and, wherever possible, highlights the interrelationships among these art forms.
Ubu Gallery is a well-known presence on the international cultural scene and enjoys a worldwide reputation for its serious explorations of areas covered by few other galleries, including acclaimed survey exhibitions of Polish, Romanian, Czech and other eastern European avant-garde art. Ubu’s focus on the avant-garde, particularly on historically important artists and movements that have not received appropriate attention, has earned the gallery frequent reviews in press throughout the world focused on the visual arts. Until recently, Ubu participated regularly in important international art fairs, including FIAC, held annually in the Grand Palais in Paris (2010-2021), Art Basel (2003–2011) and the encyclopedic Frieze Masters fair (2012–2015) showcasing the best of antiquities to modern art, held in Regent’s Park in London.
