The Bombay Beach Biennale is a renegade celebration of art, music, and philosophy that takes place each year on the literal edge of western civilization, at the shores of the Salton Sea. The 2019 event encompassed over 150 activations in 72 hours, including an academic conference, live music, performances, opera, ballet, film screenings, and multiple museum openings. Many of the art installations will become permanent fixtures within the town, which is being transformed through an ongoing infusion of artwork, creativity, and community engagement.  

2019 artwork, performances, academic conference and map can be found at 2019.bombaybeachbiennale.org

The full gallery of photos (organized by photographer) can be found at Gallery: 2019
