Description of Subject Matter: No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man
March 30, 2018 – January 21, 2019
The exhibition takes over the entire Renwick Gallery building, bringing alive the maker culture of Burning Man through artworks, room-sized installations, jewelry, costumes, and ephemera that will transport visitors to the gathering’s famed desert location, the “playa.” Immersive works by individual artists and collectives highlight the ingenuity and creative spirit of this cultural movement. Photographs and archival documents drawn from the Burning Man Archives at the Nevada Museum of Art and their exhibition City of Dust: The Evolution of Burning Man will trace Burning Man’s growth and its bohemian, counterculture roots.
PLEASE NOTE: THE EXHIBITION WILL CLOSE IN TWO PHASES
The first floor galleries will be open through September 16, 2018. This includes works by Candy Chang, Marco Cochrane, Duane Flatmo, Michael Garlington and Natalia Bertotti, Five Ton Crane Arts Collective, Scott Froschauer, Android Jones, and Richard Wilks.
The second floor galleries will be open through January 21, 2019. This includes works by David Best, FoldHaus Art Collective, Aaron Taylor Kuffner, HYBYCOZO (Yelena Filipchuk and Serge Beaulieu), Christopher Schardt, and Leo Villareal.
Specific picture descriptions: Photos above with "i" icons next to the bracketed sequence numbers (e.g. " ") are described as follows:
BURNAR_190123_18.JPG: A moving van parked at the Renwick Gallery, awaiting the wonderful No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man. The exhibit was scheduled to close on January 21, 2019. Of course, with the Trump shutdown, all Smithsonian museums closed after January 1 so no one could see this exhibit (or any others) for its last three weeks. Since there were contractual obligations to send the exhibit traveling to other museums (first stop -- the Cincinnati Art Museum), unpaid Smithsonian staff had to come in and close out the exhibit, pack it up, and send it on its way. What a sad ending to a glorious exhibit!
Bigger photos? To save space on the server and because the modern camera images are so large, photos larger than 640x480 have not been loaded on this page. If you need the bigger sizes of selected photos, email me and I can email them back to you or I can re-load this page temporarily with the bigger versions restored.
