Description: ARC Magazine announces the release of Volume Nº8, platforming a dynamic assortment of works from cultural practitioners, thinkers and makers investigating agency, intimacy, failures of representation, nostalgia, ambiguity and the cultural implications of forgetting, inciting memory, heritage and subjectivity as their core concerns.

Marta Fernandez Campa, scholar and critic, addresses Trinidadian artist Christopher Cozier’s ‘Tropical Night’ series. For the issue, Cozier has collaborated with ARC to produce an integrated template motif of the breeze-block, a repeating signifier in ‘Tropical Night’. Interacting with polemics around independence and security, Cozier relates the development of Trinidad and Tobago by exploring seminal forms throughout his space.

In our featured interview, Dominican/American artist Elia Alba with writer Legacy Russell face masquerade as a way to partake in the curious and paradoxical aspects of discovery and duality. Embracing a private/public dichotomy, these cultural stalwarts expose the interplay between duplicity/truth, veiling/unveiling.

Volume Nº8 provides a discursive platform by focusing on the ways cultural practitioners are coming to define and defend their own subjectivities. Owning up to the present, these thinkers and activists sustain the truth of their engagement and life in a way that identifies a delicate range of nuances critical to the examination of this space.
