‘An Act of Hospitality can only be poetic’ – Jacques Derrida

Inspired by a quote by Jacques Derrida, this exhibition curated by Linda Shevlin and Aoife Ruane seeks to present works that respond to themes of hospitality, identity, friendship and the multitude of journeys and conflicts encountered to attain them.

In response to ongoing and globally transformational international events, Bealtaine, the national May-time festival celebrating creativity as we age has adopted the theme of hospitality, hosting and welcome as a broad and multi-layered festival theme. The deeper undertones to the principle of hospitality are underlined by historical interpretations of the concept, including Jacques Derrida’s philosophical work on the Ethics of Hospitality.

Organised in association with Age and Opportunity as part of the nationwide Bealtaine Festival - celebrating the arts and creativity as we age.
