Desert Abyss: Cycle in Cycle, on display through September 28, is the culmination of Cichocki’s experiments with organic and synthetic materials. His multi-sensory “radioactive” exhibition highlights the ecological issues that concern Cichocki today.
The result of Cichocki’s undertakings is a heightened level of environmental awareness for the problems affecting the Salton Sea.

Desert Abyss: Cycle in Cycle serves as an opportunity for the public to join the conversation and cultivate their understanding of the troubled Salton Sea. On Sunday, September 22, the Future Days of the Salton Sea Symposium will feature six panelists (including Cichocki) who will discuss the possibilities for the future of the Salton Sea– Save the date! This event, free with museum admission, will be the highlight of the residency, more info forthcoming.

All are encouraged to attend the opening reception this Thursday from 5-8 p.m. The opening’s after party, featuring performances by LA-based Clipping, the newest addition to Sub Pop Records, plus local acts Tribesmen, The Fat’s Sabobah, and Daily Terrors, will be held down the street from the museum at BAR (340 N. Palm Canyon Drive, Palm Springs, CA, 92262) from 8-11p.m.
