Context

Dial 62761232 was the name of an express delivery company that worked with a group of Shanghai-based artists to bring the exhibition to the homes of audience members. The delivery company assigned 15 couriers to the task, who were trained at the BizArt Center. Each courier was given a suicase with a number of works by the artists. Each of the 15 suitcases contained the same works, and each participating artist was identified by name. When a courier delivered the exhibition via suitcase, the viewer would have to choose number in order to see the works.
