In November, 2014, the inaugural year of KULES resulted in EX-FACTORY - A 3-week group exhibition resulting from the residency programme, and held in the residency location, Olympus Works.
The Resident Artists, Leigh Clarke, Chloe Cooper, Leslie Deere, Doyle & Mallinson plus the two micro residency artists Sarah Thorley and Corey Whyte, transformed the 3000 square metre factory space into an immersive walk-through experience, exhibiting brand new test-works created during the residency period.
