Our story

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.
