Forty years ago the poet and performance artist John Giorno established Dial-A-Poem, a landmark experiment enabling individuals from all over the world to call in to multiple telephone lines and listen to a changing lineup of poems, sounds, and music by some of the leading artists of the day like William Burroughs and Alan Ginsberg, as well as a sundry of political speeches, Buddhist chants, and all manner of aural stimulation. Dial-A-Poem lasted until 1971, but its influence was widespread and immediate, as evidenced by the success of its contributors, and the emergence later of a robust telecommunications arts genre. 323 Projects seeks to explore how a contemporary audience, equipped with both landlines and cell phones, will access Giorno’s Dial-A-Poem exhibition format as a project space re-engineered using 21st Century technology.

323 Projects builds on Giorno’s prescient exhibition format, but with slight alterations. Instead of allotting three minutes to each artist, with work randomly selected by a set of answering machines, 323 Projects allows artists to have complete control of the gallery’s exhibition platform – a phone number connected to a voicemail service- for the duration of their show. Using sound pieces that can run from a second to up to half an hour, artists use this exhibition format to experiment with the formal, durational, and temporal possibilities.
