We are thrilled/charmed/humbled and just plain happy to present the 3rd volume of The 22 Magazine. To continue to support such amazing creative efforts in Brooklyn and the world and act as a collector of each contributors story is a role we never imagined we would have the luck to play.
We cannot thank enough all our contributors, interns, volunteers, funders, and everyone else who makes this magazine happen. It is with great honor that we present the contributors for Volume 3/III/Three of The 22 Magazine.
THE 22 MAGAZINE: VOLUME 3/III/THREE
Arts For Art, Inc. presents the 16th annual Vision Festival, New York City’s premier multidisciplinary celebration of innovative jazz music, dance, poetry, and art, held for its third year at the Abrons. Critics have described it as “arguably the most important free-jazz fest in the U.S.” (Peter Margasak, Chicago Reader), and stated that “avant-garde jazz culture has no better colloquy in this country than the Vision Festival” (Nate Chinen, The New York Times).
Each year, the Vision Festival honors the achievements of one living artist who has greatly influenced the world around them and paved the way for other innovators to move forward. On Wednesday, June 8, Arts For Art and The Vision Festival will celebrate a Lifetime of Achievement by Peter Brotzmann. This great improviser was one of the first practitioners of the Free Jazz movement in Europe. Brotzmann has programmed his own evening in such a way that it would reflect his ongoing pursuit of musical innovation. This 70-year-old artist is not interested in looking back — only in looking forward and being as creative as possible in the present.
