In collaboration with the HipHopHuis and guest curator Lee Stuart, the Kunsthal Rotterdam presents an exhibition about hip-hop and its influence on fashion and lifestyle. Streetwear is dictating the speed and aesthetics of the fashion industry and changing how that industry is developing itself. Through visual art, photography and video installations, the exhibition ‘Street Dreams: How Hiphop took over Fashion’, in collaboration with the HipHopHuis and guest curator Lee Stuart, show the looks, the codes and the creative force of hip hop, focusing on the origins and underlying philosophy of this street culture. Hip-hop is THE youth culture of choice, dominating the charts as well as the world-wide street scene – from a source of inspiration for high fashion brands to making sportswear more accepted for everyday attire.
