Martini Projects is happy to announce another Art Bar, this time in presence of danish fashion designer Henrik Vibskov.
This Wednesday at 19.00 they are extending the idea of the Art Bar as a social meeting point by hosting a workshop and installation with Henrik Vibskov.

As a fashion designer Henrik Vibskov has produced nineteen collections since he graduated from Central St. Martin’s in 2001, and he is currently the only Scandinavian designer on the official show schedule of the Paris Men’s Fashion Week, which he has been since January 2003.

Between designing new collections biannually and creating the universes surrounding them, Henrik keeps himself occupied touring the world as the drummer for electronic musician Trentemøller, and exhibiting at art museums and galleries around the world. Henrik has made exhibitions at PS1 – MoMA in New York, Palais de Tokyo in Paris, ICA in London, Zeeuws Museum in Holland, Kiyomizu-Dera Temple in Kyoto, Japan, Wilhelm Wagendfeld Haus in Bremen, NAI Nederlands Architectuur Instituut in Rotterdam, Holland, The Textile Museum, Washington, USA and Galerie Emmanuel Perrotin in Paris, in collaboration with Elmgreen & Dragset, just to name a few.

He is currently elaborating on the ongoing art project ‘The Circular Series’ with visual artist Andreas Emenius, which they begun work on in 2009. Like in their earlier collaboration ‘The Fringe Projects’ where the fringe is used formally, the circle is used as a clarifier, or visual glue, linking all the projects to the same universe.
