We are very pleased to announce programming for the opening of the Boxo10x10 on Saturday, November 19, 2022 at BoxoPROJECTS and the Integratron, as well as further programming over the period to December 31, 2022.

For the celebration of our first decade of programming at BoxoPROJECTS, artists Jim Toia and Eli Hirtle are creating two new installations on the land, Heather L. Johnson presents a new installation in the studio and an exhibition in the studio and house will feature artwork by Kelly Berg, Ben Cuevas, Megan Evans, William Lamson, Ana Sanchez-Colberg and Gosia Wlodarczak. You can read more about these artworks at Boxo10x10. Several of the artists will be present and will participate in a panel discussion moderated by Mara Gladstone, Deputy Director and Head of Programs at Desert X.

That evening we continue the festivities at the Integratron where Caroline Partamian and Ethan Primason will present The Golden Density. For Boxo10x10, Partamian and Primason have designed a performance using the architecture and history of the Integratron to further explore the relationship between the space’s function as both an idealistic spiritual totem and a highly functional acoustic space. Using architectural plans and drawings from Van Tassel’s “Proceedings of the College of Universal Wisdom” Partamian and Primason have constructed a series of sound sculptures and instruments to bring these two realities together in a series of short performances at the Integratron itself.

This event is ticketed and tickets can be purchased at this LINK (click on the green date on the calendar to get timings).
