323 Projects Presents Please Listen Carefully As Our Menu Options Have Changed by Alex Schub

• Exhibition runs from July 4, 2014 – September 19, 2014.

323 Projects is pleased to present Please Listen Carefully As Our Menu Options Have Changed, an exhibition by Alex Schub. For this exhibition, Schub exploits the familiar call waiting structure, turning the frustration of labyrinthine customer service into something strange and entertaining.

Visitors who call into 323 Projects will experience unique and inventive answering machine messages, hold music, and other notices of absence for a variety of real and fictional institutions, businesses, and individuals, like Nico’s Thermin and Kabob Palace, The Lame Excuse Hotline, Eulogies Plus: Custom Eulogies For The Recently Departed, and more. If you call in and stay on the line long enough you may actually reach an operator, or at least you might be able to leave a message. Someone will probably get back to you... but don’t hold your breath.

Schub will also make his custom-made hold music available on the 323 Projects website as the show evolves. Visitors will be able to download these audio works and use them as their own hold music should the need arise.

Callers who are able to leave a message for any of Schub's alter egos in this exhibition, may be fortunate enough to have the artist "get back to them" with responses. But, as in life, reliable service is not guaranteed.

In advance, we apologize for any delays. Please know that your business is important to us and someone will be with you shortly.

323 Projects invites you to experience Please Listen Carefully As Our Menu Options Have Changed by calling (323) 843-4652 or (323) TIE-IN-LA. The show is open all day and all night, every day of the week.
