Ubu has presented over 50 exhibitions of 20th Century avant-garde art, with a focus on 1920s and 1930s Dada, Surrealism and Constructivism. The gallery exhibits paintings, drawings, photography, collage, sculpture, and ephemera (books, posters, graphic design, etc.) and, wherever possible, highlights the interrelationships among these art forms.
