Desert X postpones its opening until lockdown is lifted in California.

As California continues to battle the Covid-19 spread, Desert X organizers have postponed the 2021 edition of the Coachella Valley outdoor sculpture exhibition until the state lifts lockdown restrictions. The exhibition’s third edition was scheduled to open on February 6 and offer both physical and digital experiences throughout the valley. “In light of the urgent health crisis and surge in cases of Covid-19, the only responsible way forward to protect our community, health care system, artists, visitors, and all those who volunteer and contribute to the exhibition is to wait until we are out of the lockdown period,” says Desert X founder Susan Davis, who will announce a new opening date “as soon as we believe we can safely do so.”

Last year’s edition of the exhibition, curated by the artistic director Neville Wakefield, featured large-scale works by Iván Argote, Pia Camil and Katie Ryan.
