The 2022 High Desert Test Sites biennial features the work of nine artists with installations in Mojave Desert locations such as Pioneertown, Yucca Valley, Joshua Tree, and Wonder Valley. This year’s exhibition, called “The Searchers,” is curated by Iwona Blazwick and focuses on “regenerative ruin.” It will be up through May 22. 

It can be a scavenger hunt to find all the artworks in “The Searchers” exhibit, including Paloma Varga Weisz’s “Foreign Body.” Photo by Lindsay Preston Zappas
