Desert X: Mirage & Alive
I’m a stalker. And recently I was stalking an aquatance on IG. Intrigued I noticed on Sunday he posted a picture of himself at Desert X’s art installation : Mirage.
Immediately I googled how to get there.
Google said I must first pick up this map to the 15 or so Desert X art installations at the Ace Hotel. That’s where my journey began.
But from my Desert home I could see this sparkly object shining in the sandy landscape.
I wondered what it was. It’s #5 on the Desert X art installation Mirage by Doug Aitken.
A house of mirrors that sits splat in the middle of the San Jacinto Mountains, off of Highway 111 and up Raquet club.
It’s a place only Narcisis himself could love. Although, the house lacks a kitchen, bathrooms and closets with lots of room for shoes , it does have a spectacular view.
By accident and since Trina Turk was closed, I found Jeffrey Gibson’s Alive located at the PS museum.
Desert X runs through the end of April 2017. Several art exhibits all along 45 miles of the enchanting desert. Check it out on your way to Coachella.
