Desert X - Inaugural Exhibition
Exhibition, Desert X, Palm Springs, US.
The desert has long exercised its fascination over the minds of artists, architects, musicians, writers, and other explorers of landscape and soul. Its very inhospitality towards life has in part made it receptive to new forms.
Nowhere more so than in Palm Springs itself, where the boundless flatness that reaches from the base of the mountains has proved fertile ground for the mid-century architectural melding of solid form and transparency, structure and openness. Desert X is a site-ecific show in which artists from different parts of the world have made work that responds to the unique conditions of the surroundings – taking the landscape itself as the exhibition space.
