Palm Springs, CA
A nomadic event that has taken place all over the world, this iteration of Pruitt’s Flea Market for the Desert X exhibition features the vintage experts, design collectors, and visual artists of Palm Springs, Joshua Tree and the Hi Desert, and the eastern Coachella Valley.
Inspired by the region’s robust mix of vintage, modern, and handcrafted goods, this traditional-style flea market presents desert tastemakers making their wares available for sale. Participants include Scott Young of Then Again, George Machado of Casa Moderno, Shari Elf, Bruce Lee Emerton Bookseller, Warren Powell, A-Z West Containers, Adrian Pijoan, Jose Noe Hernandez, Pat Kodet, Ingrid Von Sydow, and Zach Fleming-Boyles.
Pruitt makes intensely personal and biographical art, primarily in painting, sculpture, and installation, with no prevailing style or default medium. He has exhibited extensively, including at the Guggenheim Museum, Aspen Art Museum, and Museum of Contemporary Art, Detroit.
