9780810992900: Burning Man: Art in the Desert

For one week in August the Burning Man Festival in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert brings people together in a spirit of self-reliance and creativity. Art has become the defining feature of Burning Man, as the festival continues to be a testing ground for a growing circle of artists seeking engaged audiences. Their most compelling works are large-scale constructions that are burned at the end of the festival, and radically altered vehicles, or “art cars.”

Art at Burning Man, like the experience of being there itself, is a way of being outside routine existence: People return home rejuvenated and inspired to seek ways to express the spirit of the festival in their everyday lives. For more than a decade, A. Leo Nash has been creating a photographic document of this work, and in his photographs we see the wellspring of a new art movement.

About the Author:

A. Leo Nash is a photographer whose work has been widely exhibited. He is a creative participant at Burning Man and collaborates with the artists whose work he documents. He lives in Oakland, California.

Daniel Pinchbeck is the author of Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism and 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl. He lives in New York City.

From Publishers Weekly:

Nash's understated black and white photography gives an unexpected and intimate glimpse into Burning Man, the art-centric festival-community ("essentially a temporary city... of up to forty-thousand people") erected on an isolated stretch of Nevada desert every fall. Though it's known as much for hedonistic carousing as for art (if not moreso), Nash has been sleeping through the all-night parties for more than a decade so he can rise early and shoot artwork in the desert's morning light. More than a hundred of his stripped-down images are collected here, a strange and beautiful catalog of the structures, vehicles, monuments and performances dreamed up in the middle of nowhere. Writer and psychonaut Daniel Pinchbeck provides a brief introduction, but Nash's images are better complemented by his own plainspoken commentary, which focuses on the hard realities of putting on an event of Burning Man's magnitude: hazardous road trips, labor-intensive construction, infrastructure management, crowd control and the final clean up. Nash's singular, idiosyncratic perspective proves charming and frank; for instance, Nash isn't shy about tensions within the community (mainly between those who come early to build and latecomers who take the effort for granted). It's easy to imagine a lively collaborative volume on the festival, but by keeping things restrained, Nash provides a personal tour that gets to the heart of the spectacle.

Descrizione libro Abrams, United States, 2007. Hardback. Condizione libro: New. Language: English . Brand New Book. From its early days on a small beach in San Francisco in the 1980s, the Burning Man festival has evolved into a temporary city, population 25,000, in the Black Rock Desert of Nevada. For one week in August, the experimental community called Black Rock City challenges participants to join together in a spirit of self-reliance and creativity. Art is an essential aspect of Burning Man. Each year, Larry Harvey, founder of Burning Man, announces a theme for the event. Participants seek to make that theme come alive, in ways ranging from large-scale installations to individual costumes. During the years, Burning Man has become a testing-ground for a growing circle of artists seeking alternatives to mainstream art institutions and engaged audiences. All mediums are represented, with few constraints beyond safety, but certainly the most compelling works are large-scale constructions and radically altered vehicles, art cars. During the festival, most of this art is burned, in a ritual that strips it of its value in the conventional marketplace. Art at Burning Man, like the experience of being there itself, is a way of being outside routine existence. After the festival, Black Rock City becomes Black Rock Desert. For more than a decade, photographer A. Leo Nash has been creating a photographic document of this work and in his photographs we see the wellspring of a new art movement.
