Organized collaboratively by Desert X and the Royal Commission of AlUla (RCU), Desert X AlUla is a site-responsive exhibition which ran from 31 January to 7 March, 2020. Taking place in the desert of AlUla, an ancient oasis in Saudi Arabia, it brings together a plurality of voices, co-curated by Saudi Curators Raneem Farsi and Aya Alireza with Desert X Artistic Director Neville Wakefield.
Desert X AlUla is the first site-responsive exhibition of its kind in Saudi Arabia. An exploration of desert culture, the exhibition is a cross-cultural dialogue between artists from Saudi Arabia and its surrounding region and artists from previous iterations of Desert X in California, taking its cues from the extraordinary landscape and historical significance of AlUla.
DesignPM was the specialist management consultant working with RCU in managing the procurement and project, including liaising with artists and curators.
