EXILE Projects is a Miami-based nonprofit that creates and promotes experimental publications by artists.

Through our workshops, talks, exhibitions, and fairs, we aim to enhance the circulation and engagement of artists’ publications, celebrating Miami’s rich cultural diversity.

Headquartered in the Little Haiti neighborhood, EXILE is committed to establishing a pervasive print culture in Miami by creating hubs for independent publishing that represent and serve our community.

Launched in September 2014, EXILE Books traversed Miami as a pop-up artists’ bookstore for five years, establishing residency at over 25 locations. Conceived by visual artist and curator Amanda Keeley, EXILE activates public spaces to promote inclusive community participation with printed matter. We are collaborative in nature, based on forming partnerships between arts and cultural organizations while providing a generative platform for artists and small presses to promote their print projects. Under the EXILE imprint, we have produced over 50+ books and zines by artists.

In 2023, EXILE Books found a permanent home at one of our initial locations, Books & Books in Coral Gables. This partnership oversees the sales and distribution of all our titles. The EXILE Book Cart, installed here, offers an accessible cross-section of independent and self-published print projects, embodying the vibrant spirit of South Florida’s print culture.

EXILE is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors and collaborators: The John S. and James L. Knight Foundation, Metabolic Studio/ Annenberg Foundation for the Visual Arts, Wavemaker Grants and Locust Projects, The Andy Warhol Foundation for the Visual Arts, Florida Department of State Cultural Affairs, The Miami Foundation, Miami's Downtown Development Authority, Awesome Foundation, Printed Matter Inc., and Sonos.
