Art in real life returns with the third edition of the site-specific, international art exhibition Desert X. The work of thirteen artists from eight countries will be exhibited across the Coachella Valley. Opening March 12 and on view through May 16, 2021, Desert X is free and open to all. Curated by Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Co-Curator César García-Alvarez the biennale presents newly commissioned projects that examine the narratives of the west, the search for racial and gender identity, social justice, and an exploration of the communities that characterize the desert as an idea and place.
Stay tuned for our continued coverage as explore the vast expanse of the desert and document our discoveries.
