)-- “In the exhibition Desert Projekt, we are featuring two artists who work in two different mediums, creating a narrative as a mirror of their work, about how they connect and view the desert with the different lenses from the two different cultures, the result of this intriguing conversation is a collaborative body of very strong works,” said the BBAX Director/Curator, Marisa Caichiolo.
Desert Projekt is presented by Building Bridges Art Exchange and is sponsored by the Adam Mickiewicz Institute the Foundation for Research & Education Excellence, Joshua Donen Productions, Bench International and the General Consulate of Poland in Los Angeles.
