Says Becca Hoffman, Managing Director of Intersect Palm Springs, “We are thrilled to kick off 2022 being in person in Palm Springs in February and are pleased to see resounding support from our galleries, cultural partners, and the local Southern California and Palm Desert communities.”

Tim von Gal, CEO of Intersect Art and Design, adds, “Intersect Palm Springs will be an excellent opportunity to reconvene in person in one of the most beautiful places in the country. Our hope is to repeat the success we had at Intersect Aspen in 2021, by drawing a dedicated group of collectors and art enthusiasts to the Fair.”

There will be two Curated Spaces featured at the Fair:

Good Vibrations, organized by Shana Nys Dambrot (Arts Editor, LA Weekly) and Hunter Drohojowska-Philp (Author, Rebels in Paradise: The Los Angeles Art Scene and the 1960s), offers an expanded view of geometric abstraction as it has evolved in Southern California from the 1950s to include the properties of light and the emotional and transcendent uses of color. Lorser Feitelson, Karl Benjamin, John Miller, Peter Lodato, Jim Isermann, Patrick Wilson, Dani Tull, Yunhee Min, Knowledge Bennett, and Jen Stark are among the artists to be included in this multi-generational show.

ZZyzx Redux, curated by Bernard Leibov (Director, BoxoPROJECTS), and presented with support from The Art Collective Fine Art Services, is an exhibition inspired by that remote corner of the Mojave Desert which demonstrates the full cycle of modern Southern Californian desert history: from Indigenous trade route; to gold rush era federal fort; to railroad outpost; to a much hyped health resort; and finally an environmental research station. These cycles have spurred optimism, creative development, and new technologies as well as related aspects of dislocation, exploitation, and environmental damage. The exhibition looks at the sustainability of the current land rush in the local area through artworks both inspired by the attractant qualities of the region (light, space, architecture, nature, lifestyle) and those reminding us where history has taken us before. 

Donald Sultan, Three Poppies, 2020. Silkscreen with enamel inks and flocking on Museum Board, 25 x 25 in ea. 63 x 63 cm ea. Edition of 50. Maune Contemporary.

The exhibition includes work by artists Blake Baxter, Diane Best, Ryan Campbell, Gerald Clarke Jr., Sofia Enriquez, Kim Manfredi, Carlos Ramirez, Cara Romero, Aili Schmeltz, Ryan Schneider, Phillip K. Smith III, and Kim Stringfellow. 

On Saturday, February 12 at 12pm Pacific, there will be a related panel discussion with artists Gerald Clarke, Carlos Ramirez, and Kim Stringfellow, moderated by Steven Biller (Editor-in-Chief, Palm Springs Life).
