The Desert Sun’s Brian Blueskye reports that the outdoor biennial art exhibition, Desert X, has been rescheduled from February 6th to April 11th to now run from March 12th to May 16th. Organizers will release their list of participating artists on their website (https://desertx.org/) on February 16th.
Desert X is a site-specific biennial art exhibition that first took place in the Coachella Valley in the spring of 2017 and again in the spring of 2019. Artists from different parts of the world were invited to make work in response to the unique conditions of the Coachella Valley, with the desert as a blank canvas upon which the artists can project their vision and create from the extraordinary natural objects around them.
Desert X will offer digital and in-person opportunities to view work across 40 miles of the Coachella Valley. While other major outdoor events like the Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival, Stagecoach Country Music and BNPO Paribas Tennis Tournament scheduled for this spring have been cancelled, organizers of Desert X will proceed with a number of safety protocols to ensure visitor safety, including hand sanitizer and masks at each installation, health ambassadors to ensure regulations for social distancing are observed, timed ticketing to restrict the number of visitors at some installations and specific paths or directions from cars to the installations not only for COVID-19 reasons but for environmental reasons as well.
