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 at Burning Man. During that time, enormous experimental art installations are erected and many are ritually burned to the ground. Both a cultural movement and an annual event, Burning Man remains one of the most influential phenomena in contemporary American art and culture.
No Spectators brings the large-scale, participatory work from this desert gathering to Smithsonian Affiliate museums around the country via Virtual Reality. This immersive 3D experience allows visitors from across the country to “see” this exhibition at the Renwick Gallery in Washington D.C.
As the only Smithsonian Affiliate in upstate New York, The Rockwell is proud to bring Smithsonian resources and experiences to the greater Corning community – we look forward to seeing you there!« Back to Blog
