Enclave Review (ER) is a review sheet focusing on the visual arts but with additional texts relating to the greater sphere of contemporary art and thought. ER gives critical coverage of the artistic life of Cork, and situates these developments within both national and international contexts. It is printed quarterly, it does not contain any commercial advertising, and it is available free of charge. The first issue of ER was launched in July 2010.
