Says Becca Hoffman, Managing Director of Intersect Palm Springs, “For our second edition of Intersect Palm Springs, we are continuing to build our dynamic community engagement and our curated focus on art and design in the desert. It’s great to see our cultural partnerships grow, with participation from institutions, curators, collectors, and others in the Coachella Valley and Los Angeles. We are looking forward to welcoming visitors to experience our galleries’ artistic and design presentations along with our satellite programming and events.”
Adds Tim von Gal, CEO of Intersect Art and Design, “We are proud to present our second edition of Intersect Palm Springs. Returning exhibitors are coming with new presentations and freshideas, and we look forward to welcoming first-time exhibitors to the Fair. We will also have special exhibitions, panel discussions, performances, and other exciting programs—many of which respond directly to the Coachella Valley region.”
One of the highlights will be a performance and spoken word series organized by Shana Nys Dambrot (Arts Editor, LA Weekly) will present works by Los Angeles and Coachella Valley artists. Explains Nys Dambrot: “I am truly thrilled to be working with Intersect Palm Springs again, this time curating an as-yet-untitled performance and spoken word series across the opening night and all regular Fair dates, activating key points in the main exhibition hall, entrance lobby, outdoor portico, and cactus garden across from the entrance with an eclectic group of artists, ranging from multilingual spoken word, to sound bath, to site-specific dance, and augmented reality installations.”
