    Art Brokerage: Pope.L American Artist: b. 1955. Pope.L, who calls himself "The Friendliest Black Artist in America漏" and is among the foremost contemporary performance artists, addresses labor, race, and identity in projects both searing and humorous. His work, which also includes photographs, sculptures, writings, paintings, drawings, and community projects, aligns with Fluxus. Asked if he considers himself an activist, he replied: "When people use the word activism today, it sounds like after-ism...The space I create in my work for others is more formalist, like, 鈥榗hange the world'" Among his numerous iconic pieces is The Great White Way, 22 miles, 9 years, 1 street (begun 1990), for which Pope.L donned a cape-less Superman costume, strapped a skateboard to his back, and dragged himself up the entire length of Manhattan's Broadway鈥攁 visceral, ridiculous, poignant display, or, in his words, "public prostration in motion."
