The Daily Gentrifier promises to give gentrifiers “the refined fine print” about the goings on in their up-and-coming neighborhoods, with one side focusing on New York, and the other on Los Angeles. Designed, edited, and published by artist and editor Dushko Petrovich, the two-sided broadsheet measures 22”x30” and was completely hand-drawn before being digitally scanned and letterpress printed. Contributors Aruna D’Souza, Alexander Dwinell, Aaron Gemill, Christopher Glazek, and William Pohida will read from the magazine, followed by a discussion with the contributors and the audience, moderated by Daily Gentrifier editor, Dushko Petrovich.
Copies of the Daily Gentrifier will be available for purchase, but the price has gone up $10 per month, so it currently costs $80. More information can be found at www.thedailygentrifier.com
