On account of the fact that I’m no Banksy fan, I’m a little slow on the story Gothamist broke yesterday about his new billboards in New York. For anyone who cares to run out and see them there’s one at the corner of Houston and Macdougal, and another on Canal and West Broadway. Apparently the one on Houston indicates an upcoming show–who knows when.
Banksy had this to say to Gothamist about his billboards, “I wanted to play the corporations at their own game, at the same scale and in the same locations. The advantage of billboard companies is that they'll let you write anything for money, even if what you write is questioning the ethics of letting someone write anything because they have money.”
As Regina Hackett points out this comment is unfair because it enlists Banksy in an argument he’s not having. I have removed it accordingly.
