Art Billboards “Uninterrupt” the Desert Landscape in New Coachella Valley Exhibit

As part of the

Desert X

art exhibit taking place across Coachella Valley, artist Jennifer Bolande’s “Visible Distance/Second Sight” turns billboards along the Gene Autry Trail into uninterrupted views of the mountains and landscapes surrounding it.

When seen from the exact right angle from a moving vehicle, the photographic billboards perfectly line up with the surrounding landscape. “Looking up at the billboards our attention is drawn back to the landscape itself, pictured here as a stuttering kinesthetic of real and artificial horizons,” the

Desert X website

explains. 

Desert X

is running through April 30th and also features work from Doug Aitken, Lita Albuquerque, Will Boone, Claudia Comte, Armando Lerma, Jeffrey Gibson, Sherin Guirguis, Norma Jeane, Glenn Kaino, Gabriel Kuri, Richard Prince, Rob Pruitt, Juliao Sarmento, Phillip K. Smith III and Tavares Strachan.
