Exile emerged in February 2015 as a satellite project to the Cork Community Printshop in the southern Irish city. It was set to host exhibitions in the raw industrial space to include a display element to the creative output of the venue. We produced a number of shows during that year, inviting local and further Irish-based artists to use the space to present some of their work.
A little suitcase store was also available as a component of the project, to offer a small selection of accessible goods by various artists.
Since then it evolved into a micro-bookshop which proposes a selection of publications from exciting independent publishers.
Exile participated in a number of events around the country; such as an exhibition in Filter Cafe (Cork), a Repeater event with djs and independent labels (Dublin), the opening of the residency space in Greywood Art Centre (Killeagh, co. Cork)… We aim to organise many more.
Presently located as part of PLUGD record store. – Come visit us there!
