STREET / FORM: Shutter Hub Exhibition at POW! WOW! Rotterdam, 09 – 15 September 2019


STREET / FORM investigates photography’s relationship with the urban landscape and street culture. The juxtaposition of shape and form, the encounters with the unknown, the intimacy with strangers. 70 photographers from around the world find inspiration in the street. 


Shutter Hub have teamed up with one of the most exciting street art festivals in the world, and have curated an exhibition of photography for POW! WOW! Rotterdam – Europe’s leading street art festival, this Autumn. As part of this world-class festival programme, Shutter Hub are hosting a week long exhibition, taking over an empty property in the Rotterdam-Zuid area and filling it with over 100 large scale newspaper prints. Newspaper is a temporary, democratic material with a low environmental impact compared to other exhibition processes.


Street photography is often under-represented as a form of street art, and we want to change this. Here we have an amazing platform for street art and socially engaged projects, and this opportunity to share work allows us to connect with exciting new audiences and build stronger community connections.


POW! WOW! is the best known street art festival in the world. It started in the outskirts of Hawaii, transforming a grey suburb into a beloved open air gallery. After several successful editions on the island, the festival spread to locations in Los Angeles, Taiwan, Hong Kong and Japan. In 2018, its very first European edition was held to much acclaim, with Rotterdam as its host.
