Seven days of influences, inspiration and innovation in unexpected places.

Seven days of influences, inspiration and innovation in unexpected places.

Popping up in new places was the theme this week as Huck took up residency in Old Street station on London’s Underground — and invited a few friends to join us. San Francisco and Cannes were a few of the other places where Huck popped up.

Pop Pop Pop

Huck hosted its first ever pop-up gallery at Old Street, one of London’s busiest tube stations. It was a chance to  spotlight a few longtime friends of the magazine including Satta Skates, The Photocopy Club and Puck Collective.

Thanks to everyone who came by. For those outside London who couldn’t drop in to meet our collaborators in person we created “The Station Sessions,” a series of short video interviews with our pop up partners.

San Francisco

The art of popping up was also an entry point for our exploration of San Francisco — one of the themes of Huck 044 (available now on better newsstands, or  instantly through Zinio).

Dear Mom has become central to San Francisco’s food scene by opening its kitchen every weekend to chefs big and small and offering them the chance to experiment and be creative. (Read our interview with Dear Mom’s Caroline Hummer.)
Our exploration of community centres led to Mollusk Surf Shop, where founder John McCambridge spoke to us, reflecting on his journey through the world of California’s alternative surf culture since the shop first appeared nearly a decade ago. (Read Huck’s interview with John McCambridge.)
