In addition to the large-scale artworks currently being installed at No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man, opening at the Renwick Gallery of Art on March 30, the exhibition features hand-made jewelry and clothing such as Iranian-born designer, Gelareh Alam's "warrior chic," Cocoon Gown, created with Sophia Constance (Lyraphic) and Nagana Brass Gown with custom metal work by Jungle Tribe. At Burning Man, traditional styles of dress are eschewed in favor of clothing inspired by sources as varied as burlesque, Carnival, Day of the Dead, steampunk, and rave culture. "The act of transformation," Alam has said, "is an act of empowerment."
The exhibition opens March 30. Learn more about the artists and artworks featured in: No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man.
