No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man

(Friday) (Sunday)

Each year in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, a city of more than 70,000 people rises out of the dust for a single week. During that time, multi-story art installations and buildings are erected and many are burned to the ground. Dedicated to principles of radical self-expression, decommodification, communal participation and a reverence for the handmade, the thriving temporary metropolis known as Burning Man is a uniquely American hotbed of artistic ingenuity and one of the most influential events in contemporary art and culture.Each year in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, a city of more than 70,000 people rises out of the dust for a single week.
