Murmuration - The Bowes Museum
Tel: +44 01833690606
Birds are the focal point for this group show which takes inspiration from the ornithologist, photographer and former Barnard Castle School pupil Bentley Beetham, who took part in the 1924 British Mount Everest expedition. Featuring ornithological imagery from the collection and contextual metaphors that reference flocking together for safety and survival, we'll explore birds as an indicator species responsive to environmental change and look at migration in terms of avian and human understanding of home and belonging. Through a series of events, interventions and resources, Murmuration will raise awareness of our impact on the environment and promote change toward a more sustainable, equitable and ecological future on our increasingly fragile planet.
