Bringing three strands of Huck‘s interests to life – photography, craft, and illustration – Pop Pop Pop is a six-day celebration of DIY culture in the belly of one of London’s busiest Underground stations, Old Street, Shoreditch.
Huck is inviting readers, visitors and commuters to watch artisanal skate company Satta, creative art collective Puck and DIY xeroxed photo experiment The Photocopy Club set up their interactive installations over day-and-a-half periods to lift the curtain on the pop-up gallery process, show the curator mindset at work, and engage in zine-swapping and deck-shaping shenanigans.
As well as the exhibits and working artists, Huck is inviting the local creative community to come and be a part of Station Sessions – ten-minute quick-fire Q&As hosted at Pop Pop Pop and broadcast through the Huck website. Tackling contemporary questions like, ‘How can you make yourself heard in an age of digital noise?’ and giving advice to young upstarts looking to get into the game, Station Sessions will deliver quick, insightful lunchtime digests to your desktop.
Pop Pop Pop will also host a launch party on Thursday May 22, 6-8pm, to celebrate our newest issue, Huck 44, featuring Tommy Guerrero on the cover, and enjoy the installations over some White Russians served by Jimmy’s Iced Coffee. RSVP on our eventbrite.
Pop along to any session and watch the gallery spring to life.
