Off-Road Expo

  • Machine Project Secret Desert Location (map)

Recommended donation: $20

High Desert Test Sites and Machine Project are teaming up to present Off-Road Expo, coming March 28th and 29th.  We’ve invited a few of our favorite artists and you, the public, to join us for a weekend of camping and art activity at a secret off-road site in the desert (site will be roughly 100 miles from both Joshua Tree and Los Angeles). 

Participating artists include: Bob DornbergerSean DuffyJohanna Hedva with Arne Gjetlen, Joe Seely & Zut AlorsClare KellyJohn KnuthCandice LinChrysanthe O, Gabie Strong & Dustin Smith of KCHUNG, andMichael Parker.

Here’s how it’ll work: to get the site location/reserve your spot, purchase your ticket here (sliding scale from $10 to $100).  Alternatively you can find a list here of everything our artists need to make their projects happen.  Email to commit to providing one or more of these items, we’ll connect you with the artists who need them, and in exchange we’ll reserve you a spot at the expo. Space is limited.

In addition to bringing everything you need to camp for an evening, please bring ghost stories, weird projects to show off, and a meal to share for a sunset potluck dinner.  (Don't forget to pack out everything you bring in!)  Hope to see you there!

P.S. There is a $15 car fee at the Expo location. Carpooling is highly encouraged! Email if you have space in your car you’d like to make available to fellow expo-goers. There will be a caravan leaving from Machine Project on the 28th.

Please buy a ticket!!
