An unofficial history of Jamaican dancehall music told through its graphic design, Serious Things a Go Happen brings together more than 100 original posters and signs from the early 1980s through today. Drawn from the poster collection of Jamaican film and television producer and director Maxine Walters. Over the past three decades Walters has amassed a collection of some 4,000 of these posters advertising local “bashments” held at bars, on beaches and in primary schools. Treated by most Jamaicans as simply a fact of life, the dancehall poster has until recently received little critical attention. This volume begins to rectify that with essays by Vivien Goldman and others alongside the posters themselves, reproduced full color.
