X Billboard Project


Tony Cokes , Marc Pierson

The bi-racial artists collaborative X-PrZ used public sites in Boston for a yearlong series of billboards, subway station lightbox ads, and posters for subway cars, buses, and bus shelters. The work examines the figure and cultural legacy of Malcolm X in a revisionist historical framework, deconstructing his place as a commodified folk hero in the urban landscape. The project included five billboards and was documented via a website and the production of a broadcast-quality videotape.
