About Desert X

Desert X 2023 will open 4 March–7 May, 2023 at sites across the Coachella Valley. In this fourth edition in California curated by Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Co-curator Diana Campbell, artists from Europe, North America and South Asia will create poetic and immersive works that merge sculpture, painting, drawing, writing, architecture, film, sound performance and choreography. The exhibition will examine social and environmental themes explored in earlier editions with a focus on the social changes that give form to a world increasingly shaped by climate crisis, globalism and the political and economic migrations that follow in its wake.
