Desert X 2017

Words by Elena Scarpa
March 3, 2017

From the end of February until the end of April 2017, the valley of Coachella and the desert is hosting a curated exhibition titled “Desert X”. The works on show are all site-specific and they are both by emerging and established artists.

It started as the Desert Biennial and the organizers decided to rename it to Desert X (short for Desert Exhibition of Art) in order not to feel obliged to repeating the exhibition every two years.

Artists involved this year include Doug Aitken, who produced a work titled Mirage which “presents a continually challenging encounter in which subject and object, inside and outside are in constant flux”.
