I starting a project on domain X. Though it existed before and was already quite famous, an important name N got so popular that it became a bannerman of the whole domain, and the general audience would take N as a representative of the domain.
The problem is that N passed away long ago and the project is to show that a lot has been done in X since then. I'd like my project to have a title that carries this idea. I found that "N is dead" (in reference to Nas' "hip hop is dead", though the main idea is different) too direct and provocative. I don't want to be dismissive on N's contribution, but the project is to highlight all the other talented persons that enriched X.
What I come up so far is "N is no more" but I am not sure it works. I cannot find it in this Wikipedia page on death-related expression.
As an example, if the project was on English theater, I would call it "Shakespeare is no more"
Is it a correct (grammatically, provocative but polite enough) way to express this idea?
