The vast Coachella Valley is home to an expansive art exhibition dubbed Desert X, which explores topics ranging from politics to ecological disasters. The event, taking place during Modernism Week, was curated by Neville Wakefield, co-curator Amanda Hunt, and co-curator Matthew Schum. The art adds a serious contrast to the otherwise desolate area of Palm Springs, featuring work from globally renowned artists.

Standouts from this year’s line-up include A Point of View by Iván Argote, which invites guests to climb up concrete steps leading nowhere. Once at the top, guests are invited to appreciate their surroundings and to welcome alternative perspectives. Meanwhile, Dive-in by Superflex stands as a pink building, that screens a film warning onlookers of environmental damage.
