Desert X
Coachella Valley, Palm Springs
From 25 February to 30 April 2017

 

From February 25 through April 30, 2017, the Coachella Valley and its desert landscape will become the canvas for a curated exhibition of site-specific work by established and emerging artists, whose projects will amplify and articulate global and local issues that may range from climate change to starry skies, from tribal culture and immigration to tourism, gaming, and golf. The artworks, in various indoor and outdoor locations, will be available free and will offer visitors a way to see the valley and reflect on serious and playful issues through the lens of the participating artists’ creativity and work.

Artists from different parts of the world will be invited to make work that responds to the unique conditions of Palm Springs and the surrounding Coachella Valley. The desert of Desert X is the blank canvas upon which contemporary artists, like the writers, architects, musicians and others before them, will be invited to project their vision and to create from the extraordinary natural and social history around them objects and experiences that reflect upon the matchless spectacle of the geologic epic, the radical abstraction of the surroundings and the singular incursions of man into the seemingly barren landscape.

Unique in that it takes the landscape itself as its exhibition space, Desert X will offer the opportunity to explore both the familiar and the unknown through the eyes of others. If the desert is indeed God without man, then Desert X is art without constraint.

FEATURED ARTIST: GLORIA KEH

Art | June 21, 2022

As I age, it is inevitable that certain physical issues need to be addressed and accepted. Gone are the days when I could paint huge works for hours on end. Although this realisation was initially very hard to accept, my daily practice of art has brought new dimensions to my world of art. Art is such consolation. Read more
