Palm Springs Art Museum’s ‘Outburst Project’ featuring 5 new artists

Artist Gabriela Ruiz poses as part of her installation at the Palm Springs Art Museum in Palm Springs, California, on July 21, 2022.

During a recent visit to the Palm Springs Art Museum, Los Angeles artist Gabriel Ruiz stood in the frame of a fun house he’s creating for the latest “Outburst Project” exhibit.

It was an empty shell, but as he showed areas that would contain Plexiglas, sculptures, 3D objects, sound, video clips and more, the concept began to take shape. The immersive installation is an examination of the inner workings of the brain and its thought process.

“We live in a state where everything is so up in the air,” Ruiz said. You can wake up and stress about the day and think “How am I going to get to work?” We go to work, we have to do this or that, and it’s like we’re on autopilot a lot of the time.”
