Terminal-2 at CPH to focus on art & fashion photography

July 11, 2009 - Denmark

Perfectly timed for the upcoming summer fair, Terminal-2 launches an entirely new outdoor spot in the impressive green area situated on the east side of the venue. Designed to host a variety of bars, cafés, chill-out areas and even a barbecue, the new area is the ideal place to take a break from hectic meetings and enjoy a meal, coffee or chat in the Copenhagen sun. Heineken is on again to bring their super chilled Extra Cold Heineken beers and Joe & The Juice offers a great line in delicious juices and panini. Bagel & Co will also be at Terminal-2 making the best bagels in town.

This time around, Terminal-2 is completely dedicated to art, including photo exhibitions, art installations and gallery areas. The aim is to create a universe that will captivate and inspire in order to stimulate exhibitors and offer an extra experience and overall creative atmosphere.

The Spanish streetwear brand Desigual will host an interactive street-art wall in the outdoor area, giving visitors the opportunity to participate with their own art contributions.

Renowned Danish graffiti artists will be on board to add some colour to the rough concrete and inside the terminal a street art gallery will play host to hand-painted mannequins brought to you by Penther and exquisitely painted by well-known contemporary Danish artists. The pieces will later be auctioned off with proceeds going to support new up-and-coming designers in an imminent fashion project.

The Norwegian artist Bjørn Bassen pairs up with Royal Copenhagen to create a one-of-a-kind art partnership and the team behind the Copenhagen BLDG network bring their arty street friends along to create the perfect marriage between art and street in collaboration with Montana Colors.

New media partner this time is the Greek fashion publication Ozon Magazine which will be contributing with its own photo exhibition and showcasing an amazing fashion photography selection from both previous and new issues, interpreted by internationally recognised photographers.

The New York-based trend agency Stylesight comes to Terminal-2 with their very own photo booth to look for new developments and people with an inspiring edgy style. Make sure you put on your best dress and you might be one of the lucky ones to be published on the international web portal!

Long time media-partner Sportswear international is on again and the Danish music publicationSoundvenue celebrates its August Fashion Issue with a guest appearance on Friday afternoon along with music, refreshing after-work beers and goodie bags. More mediapartners to be announced next week!

This and much more is taking place at Terminal-2 - definitely one of the must-see events of Copenhagen Fashion Week this August.

Next fair dates: 6-9 August 2009.
