Serious Things A Go Happen: Three Decades of Jamaican Dancehall Signs

By Maxine Walters

Serious Things A Go Happen: Three Decades of Jamaican Dancehall Signs, documents Jamaica’s musical journey into the 21st century, through the island’s vibrant, indigenous street sign culture. Jamaican dancehall emerged out of reggae in the late 1970s and brought with it a new visual style characterized by bright colours and bold, hand- drawn lettering on posters promoting parties. Serious Things A Go Happen brings together more than 100 original posters and signs from the 1990’s through today, drawn from the collection of Jamaican film and television producer Maxine Walters.
