Desert X 2021

Coachella Valley, CA

March 12 – May 16

Curated by Desert X Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Co-curator César García-Alvarez.

Presented by

The Desert X 2021 exhibition explores the desert as both a place and idea, acknowledging the realities of people who reside here and the political, social, and cultural contexts that shape our stories.

Among the first art experiences in the region since widespread lockdowns to offer a safe, outdoor experience that is free and open to all, Desert X includes newly commissioned works that collectively pose urgent questions about our pasts while imagining the possibilities of a shared future.
