No Spectators: Beyond the Renwick

Burning Man Artworks Enliven Golden Triangle Streets and Parks in New Collaboration with Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery

A groundbreaking collaboration between the Golden Triangle Business Improvement District (BID) and the Smithsonian American Art Museum’s Renwick Gallery – entitled No Spectators: Beyond the Renwick – will activate Washington, DC’s central business district with six public art installations. The unique partnership marks the first time the Renwick Gallery will expand beyond its walls to show artwork along the streets and parks within the surrounding Golden Triangle neighborhood.

The project is an outdoor extension of the Renwick Gallery’s museum-wide exhibition No Spectators: The Art of Burning Man which will feature large-scale, immersive artworks that are the hallmark of the annual celebration in Nevada’s Black Rock Desert, an influential phenomenon in contemporary art and culture. No Spectators: Beyond the Renwick will be on view in the Golden Triangle from March 30 through December 2018, with the Renwick exhibition on display through January 21, 2019.
