About Event

Desert X 2021 will open to the public on March 12-May 16, 2021 at sites across the California desert. As we prepare to welcome you to our third edition in the Coachella Valley, the health and safety of our visitors, artists, employees, volunteers and community is a priority. Up-to-date guidelines and requirements pertaining to experiencing the exhibition and the public programs safely and in compliance with state, county and CDC regulations will be available prior to the opening of the exhibition. The exhibition and public programs are free and open to the public.

Desert X is produced by the desert biennial, a 501(c)3 charitable organization, conceived to produce recurring international contemporary art exhibitions that activate desert locations through site-specific installations by acclaimed international artists. Its guiding purposes and principles include presenting public exhibitions of art that respond meaningfully to the conditions of desert locations, the environment and indigenous communities; promoting cultural exchange and education programs that foster dialogue and understanding among cultures and communities about shared artistic, historical, and societal issues; and providing an accessible platform for artists from around the world to address ecological, cultural, spiritual, and other existential themes.
