Matthias Merkel Hess will conduct a public access project investigating what the public wants from artists. Hess has already installed  “bandit” telephone pole signs around Los Angeles that say “Fine Art (626) 394-3963.” Aligning his status as a young artist with that of the fly-by-night businesses usually advertised on telephone poles, the signs are an invitation to the public to call him at his personal number and discuss art. The outcome of the conversations will be an art object, experience or consultation that Merkel Hess gives to callers for free. The project’s overall goal is to comment on the economic status of artists and how our society values artistic labor, and at the same time bring Merkel Hess recognition as an artist.
