Salon D’Exploration’, is a collaborative initiative between ‘La Cat Salon’, the in-house programme of La Catedral Studios/The back Loft and Art-House, a group of seven fine artists recently graduated from NCAD and DIT which aims to establish an art studio in Dublin.
The Back Loft is a multi-disciplinary space in what was a Victorian textile factory for the Saint Bernard Brand. During the 80s it was also a warehouse space used to store rental televisions and it was hence nicknamed “Telly building”.   
Most of the work in the Salon’s exhibition is site specific since explores the architecture and the history of the ‘Back Loft’ building. The artists use a wide variety of media including sculpture, painting, embroidery, photography, projection and video work.
This exhibition will also feature the ‘Back Loft’ Café, a recently built-in charming cafe-saloon created with reclaimed materials, where members of the audience will be invited to leisure and mingle whilst sampling creative delights during the Salon’s rich calendar of satellite events.
