Desert X, the recurring site-specific, international art exhibition, will open for its fourth edition in the Coachella Valley from March 4 – May 7, 2023. Diana Campbell is set to co-curate with returning artistic director Neville Wakefield. The 501(c)3 charitable organization conceived to produce recurring international contemporary art exhibitions that activate desert locations through site-specific installations by acclaimed international artists has drawn a total audience of more than 1.25 million to its three previous exhibitions in the Coachella Valley. Its guiding principles include presenting public exhibitions of art that respond meaningfully to the conditions of desert locations, the environment, and the indigenous communities; promoting cultural exchange and education programs that foster dialogue and understanding among cultures and communities about shared artistic, historical, and societal issues; and providing an accessible platform for artists from around the world to address ecological, cultural, spiritual and other existential themes.

Desert X 2023 presents a compelling opportunity to connect communities around the globe, especially when it comes to how we survive in a world with increasingly volatile environmental conditions,” said Desert X 2023 Co-curator Diana Campbell. “For my first project of this scale in the United States I am driven to draw translocal connections across contexts of extreme weather – from the droughts of the California desert to the floods of Bangladesh.”

Desert X President and Founder Susan Davis said, “We are growing a formidable, diverse board that brings the resources, expertise, vision and courage we need as Desert X advances its mission to promote cultural exchange, new dialogue and understanding through art that is accessible to all.”

This year, the exhibition features 11 multigenerational artists hailing from Europe, North America, and South Asia.
