Time Out says
Pop-Up Magazine brings together the best kinds of creatives—writers, artists, photographers, filmmakers, puppeteers, the list goes on—and puts them onstage to share and discuss their work. All pieces performed at the show are new and unpublished, either created for the event or as part of a larger ongoing project. This means getting a first look at work from some of the biggest names in fiction, photography, film and more—according to former senior editor Pat Walters, “work everyone else will start hearing about a year from now.” Also, nothing is recorded, so everything shared is a one-time only creative experience.
Contributors to the winter issue include comedians Catherine Cohen and Jo Firestone; musician Jinho “The Piper” Ferreira; documentary filmmakers Isabel Castro, Jon-Sesrie Goff and Cecilia Aldarondo; photographer Diana Markosian; and artists Liana Finck and Esther Pearl Watson.
