Festival Center

Experience our Festival Center

At our Festival Center you can experience a variety of exhibitions, talks, events and social gatherings. The Festival Center is located in the midst of a 10,000 m2 urban wilderness at the artificial island Refshaleøen and connects art experience with social events and open-air music supplied by DJ’s.

The exhibition park and venue is placed in the sweet spot between Copenhagen Contemporary, Reffens Street Food, Lille Bakery, Øens Have, Restaurant Alchemist and many other innovative and creative neighbors residing in the post-industrial buildings.

Address: Refshalevej 173c, 1432 København K
Open: 2-12 June, 11 am – 20 pm


FRAME is our permanent container construction which offers a two-story indoor exhibition space combined with a Rooftop Terrasse giving you the perfect view of the exhibition park and the post-industrial area. Visit the café or enjoy our French inspired after-hours festive event L’Apéro with drinks and DJ performances, or dive into exhibitions such as this year’s three solo artists exhibiting under our focal points: Framing Identity, Framing Society and Framing Vision.


We put great emphasis on architectural and spatial experiences, and our outdoor architectural construction SPACE FRAME provides a unique exhibition encounter. This year the Copenhagen based creative studio Tofu Collective provides insights into Chinese art and culture at SPACE FRAME.


Walk around the 10,000 m2 exhibition park at the urban wilderness of Refshaleøen to discover a wide variety of lens-based artworks, e.g. from emerging talents from our Futures Nordic Talents programme.


The Festival Center is also home for a selection of talks that widens your understanding and knowledges of the photographic field and certain lens-based projects.


In addition, CPF hosts workshops, e.g. a Cyanotype workshop hosted by Fotogodsbanen.
