Conversation & Reception

Desert X in Conversation

11:30am–1pm, Friday, January 26, 2018

ALAC Theatre

Join Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Co-Curators Amanda Hunt and Matthew Schum for a reception followed by a discussion on the upcoming Desert X 2019. The mission of Desert X is to bring leading artists to the Coachella Valley to create site-specific art, engage viewers, and focus attention on the valley’s environment, its natural wonders, as well as the environmental, socio-political and economic issues facing California’s desert communities.

The inaugural exhibition took place in 2017 to critical and popular acclaim attracting more than 200,000 local and international visitors and was the recipient of multiple awards for its extensive education and community programs.

The second edition of Desert X opens February 9–April 21, 2019 in the Coachella Valley, CA.
