Dizzy Magazine Issue #8 Launch

at Printed Matter / St Marks
March 27, 2022
3 - 6 PM

Join us at Printed Matter / St Marks for the launch of Dizzy Magazine Issue #8! We’ll have music, magazines, and snacks by BIG CHUNE on the rooftop of 38 St Marks Pl.

Continuing their country-specific series, Issue #8 focus on artists living and working in JAMAICA. The edition is guest edited by Anna Pollack, a Brooklyn-based photographer and filmmaker. In her Editor’s Note, Anna writes: “I think of the island and its influence on a global scale. How it is the backbone for so many influences across music, fashion, art. I think about representation, and the lack of it. How this tiny island has still undoubtedly made a name for itself. How it deserves recognition. How such a beautiful and spiritual place transcends many mediums but, for the most part, has only been highly regarded and praised for the music. I grew curious about the visual arts in Jamaica, specifically. I thought about the colors, the landscapes, the stories, the materials.”
