JAYSON SCOTT MUSSON- TOO BLACK FOR BET POSTERS!







Jayson Musson’s– Too Black for B.E.T. is a series of text-based, broadside posters that cover an odd breadth of topics such as politics, Harry Potter, Jay-Z lips, terrorism, sex, drugs, racism, sex again, ‘Hurricane Gentrification’, and of course, Star Wars.

Originally, the posters were collected into handmade photocopied zines that the artist produced as catalogues for the two art exhibitions of the posters, Too Black for B.E.T. in 2002, and Too Black for B.E.T. Episode II: The Black Boy George in 2006. Both exhibitions were held at Philadelphia’s Space 1026 gallery. Now, the 34 posters from the two zines have been collected into a single volume and is available for purchase at Free News Projects.
