Tim Small and Riccardo Trotta, the editor and the production manager of the Italian edition of VICE Magazine, bring their skills stateside with the first issue of their new literary semi-annual The Milan Review. Contributors Deb Olin Unferth, E. C. Osondu, Nelly Reifler, and editor Tim Small will be in the Arena to commemorate the occasion, which includes a DJ set by photographer Lele Saveri. Copies of the limited edition print run of 300 will be available for purchase.
Each issue of The Milan Review will aim to be heavily themed, innovative and completely different from the previous issues. The Milan Review's launch marks the beginning of an ongoing project that will include stand-alone fiction, art books, and zines. Contributors Deb Olin Unferth, Nelly Reifler, E.C. Osondu, and editor Tim Small will be in the Arena to commemorate the occasion. Numbered copies of the limited edition print run of 300 will be available for purchase. We're the only NYC location that will carry this rare journal, so be sure to make it out to the launch.
