THE ELEMENTAL's approach to multidisciplinary exhibitions and programming aims to advance global intersections between art and environment - placing emphasis on the evolution of Earth & Land Art, BioArt, or Sound Art. Housed within a large-scale industrial building located in Palm Springs, THE ELEMENTAL was established through the collaborative partnership between the Paris-based Foundation LAccolade - lnstitut de France founded by Catherine Dobler, and Epicenter Projects (Fulcrum Arts), founded by Coachella Valley artist Cristopher Cichocki.

 

This contemporary center for the arts was designed to showcase exhibitions, lectures, workshops, performances, and printed editions organized under the direction of French curator Christopher Yggdre of Foundation LAccolade. Additionally, the art center will facilitate visiting international artists selected from the Foundation LAccolade residency program that will engage with the surrounding desert regions of Southern California and the greater Western United States.
