The focus of Desert Sexy is to reveal the uniquely peripheral and independent visuality that the desert landscape ultimately generates. Indulging in the condition of exclusivity and disconnectedness, the relationship of the embodied desert experience and this landscape’s influence upon the creative process is presented through photography, painting, sculpture, graphics and music. Desert Sexy observes the Southern California desert as an engendering space of hybridity, where one is asked to project their individual desire upon the landscape and perhaps capture its (entropic) “ruin”.   
From places where corporate America has already infiltrated to the detached (yet increasingly adopted) nonplaces in between, this visual investigation shares an aesthetic value system informed by the vast isolation of the extreme geography and exemplifies the ‘do-it-yourself’ ethic of its distinct and aloof establishment. 
The exhibition will present an exploration of the metaphors and mythologies of the desert ‘west,’ comprehended through the suggestions of art, music, drugs, film and the desert mentality: DO YOUR OWN THING. 
Featured artists: Lisa K. Blatt, Scott Bowering, Joel Kyack, Mario Lalli, Anthony Lepore, Logan/The Date Farmers, Joey Morris, Keith Patrick, Robert Stone, Peter Sutherland, Tony Tornay, and Stephen Walters. 

The Constant Gallery is an independent and experimental space that explores the role of globalization within visual culture(s).
