The Conference of the Birds: Curlew & Great Auk
Artist and animator Sean Harris gives voice to two iconic birds: the Curlew – which may be gone from Wales in less than a decade – and the Great Auk – whose tragic demise, bookended by pioneering Welsh science, raises stark questions of our capacity to learn from past mistakes. Sponsored by Llyr Gruffydd MS, Mark Isherwood MS and Carolyn Thomas MS. Dates: 19 September- 19 December 2023.

About exhibitions at the Senedd
When the Senedd building first opened four artists were commissioned to provide sculptures to form part of the architecture of the building. More recently, Welsh artist Angharad Pearce Jones was commissioned to create two sculptures for the Senedd’s main public spaces to allow people to connect and learn about the Senedd and the Members who represent them.
