“High Desert Test Sites supports experimental art that engages with the local environment and community.

We generate physical and conceptual spaces for art exploring the intersections between contemporary art and life at large. Scattered along a stretch of intimate yet diverse desert communities that include Joshua Tree, Pioneertown, Wonder Valley, Yucca Valley, and 29 Palms, our sites provide a place for both fleeting and long-term experimental projects.

HDTS was first conceived of eleven years ago as an experimental forum for merging contemporary art with life at large. Since 2002, we have hosted more than 200 artists, architects, designers, desert doers, and other inspirational figures. The HDTS HQ in downtown Joshua Tree opened in 2010 and offers info and driving maps to our local sites, a desert research library, project archives, workshops, and the HDTS Life Enhancement Shop. Recently we also added the HDTS Scout residence program, and In October we are hosting HDTS 2013, our biggest event ever – with more than 60 projects along over 700 miles of desert roads, from Joshua Tree to Albuquerque. “
