Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival, 2014-present
Teale Hatheway is a mixed media painter working on the subjects of architecture, memory and visual awareness of place. For Coachella, Teale painted murals on 53 of Coachella’s canvas tipis in an inversion of her two dimensional art practice. Focusing on the formal cone shape of the teepee while using a complex yet limited color palette, Teale explored a range of patterns made dynamic by their application to this culturally significant architectural form. The tipis are in the permanent collection of Goldenvoice and are available as living quarters at the annual Coachella music festival.
