NEW YORK, NY.- Intersect Palm Springs
, a boutique fair that brings together a dynamic mix of modern and contemporary art and design galleries, announces its 2022 edition, beginning with an Opening Night Preview on Thursday, February 10, followed by General Admission from Friday, February 11 through Sunday, February 13.
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 South 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.
Intersect Palm Springs will feature a mix of 50 emerging and established contemporary and modern art and design galleries, to be announced in 2022. There will be a spotlight on sculpture at the entry to the Fair, and three special exhibitions:
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 Revisited, curated by Bernard Leibov (Director, BoxoPROJECTS), and presented with support from The Art Collective Fine Art Services, is an exhibition of works by regional artists that captures the allure of desert life and points to the impacts of cyclical migrations of people and capital on local communities and the environment.
The third exhibition will be centered on collectible design and curated by gallerist Peter Blake.
