In the spirit of community, assemblage art, and curio, Yucca Valley Visual and Performing Arts Center presents Concourse C. Inspired by the book STATION ELEVEN by Emily St. John Mandel and its post pandemic genesis of an
airport community, the exhibition explores the repurposing of discarded waste into potential functioning shelter and as an archive of human enterprise.
Cathy Allen's assemblage shelter installation will be on view alongside selections from Karyl Newman's Waste Wunderkammer collection of objects found lingering in the desert. The collection parallel's STATION
ELEVEN's Museum of Civilization, a display of extinct technology housed in the gift shop of Concourse C.
