GUERRILLA ART: Being Judgmental About Bobby Brown

Published on .

Being and Nothingness
The sad parade of has-been reality TV programming marches on, with Bobby Brown getting a show on Bravo. And the subway poster touting the series conveniently has a ton of empty white space on Bobby's jacket for consumer comments. "So many things ran through my mind the first few times I saw this ad," says Kate Harvill (www.kateharvill.net), an art director at Cossette Post in New York, who shot her "Wife-beating cokehead" addition (see the PDF) at the 23rd Street station on the 6 line. "Apparently I wasn't the only one." No, you weren't, Kate. We got ours, in which a not-so-great speller wasn't too concerned about the wife-beating, at Hunterspoint Avenue on the 7 line.
