Cultural Belongings: an exhibition of the poetry of Gerald Dawe

6th December 2022 - 26th December 2022

In association with The John J. Burns Library, Boston College

Curated by Dr Frank Ferguson, Ulster University

Gerald Dawe celebrates the art of living in places. Whether the Belfast of the 1960s, the anxious territories of the 1970s and 1980s, or the emergent Irelands north and south of recent decades, his writing expresses the potency of memory to shape and sustain. One of Belfast’s most gifted living writers, his poetry, memoir and criticism stand as powerful testimonies to the energy, movement and possibility of the homes and cities in which he resides. In this exhibition in collaboration with Frank Ferguson and the John J. Burns Library, Boston College, Gerald Dawe charts the places, people and moments that has shaped his life and his sense of cultural belonging.
