Desert X 2021 is curated by Artistic Director Neville Wakefield and Co-curator César García-Alvarez. The exhibition, which is free and open to all includes newly commissioned works by 12 artists from 8 countries, that collectively pose urgent questions about our pasts while imagining the possibilities of a shared future. The site-specific installations explore the desert as both a place and idea, acknowledging the realities of people who reside here and the political, social, and cultural contexts that shape their stories.
