Each year 75,000 people travel to Black Rock Desert in Nevada to take part in the thriving temporary metropolis known as Burning Man. It is a hotbed of artistic ingenuity, driving innovation through its principles of radical self-expression, decommodification, communal participation, and reverence for the handmade. Taking it’s title from a long-standing saying on the “Playa” that encourages participation, No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man is the largest exhibition the museum has ever put on. It brings the large-scale, participatory work from this desert gathering to a broader public.
Renwick Gallery of the Smithsonian American Art Museum
The full exhibition runs through September 16, 2018 buy some art works will remain on view until January 2019.
