ARTISTS and ART COMMUNITIES

This is a nationwide list of culturally-related artists, art communities, galleries, exhibitions, and the like that either make, exhibit, support or organize communities around Burning Man or Burning Man-esque art. Did you bring your creativity to Burning Man? We want to see it! (Note: Photographers should post their pictures in the "Photographers' Galleries" section.)

Please add your organization's link at the bottom of this page. Oh, and if you're hoping to post porn here, don't bother. It won't see the light of day.

  • Ashoka Ritual - Global Artist Networking - A documentation about the GOA culture and the GOA open air festival Liquid Time IX. The two music styles Goa and Techno are compared with each other.
    GOA is originally the name for a group of beaches in the southwest of India. They are places filled with beauty. Eventually, the Federal State of GOA was established there, a few hours south of Bombay. Together with San Francisco and Ibiza, GOA represents the cradle of the modern trance movement. GOA, the music, is a mixture of celestial sounds and elements of Indian music. It is not simply techno. It is melodic, inspirational. But like all musical trends, GOA has undergone change. Numerous sub-trends have developed, and GOA sometimes tends to be confused with "experimental techno".
    this paradise was a gate of sorts for foreign backpackers, often Israelis and Germans, to the treasures of India and the Indian culture. Techno reached the shores of GOA in the second half of the 80s and was originally the music of rebels and dropouts at that time, with parties that sometimes had the feeling of Woodstock about them - not because the numbers were so huge, but because of their variety, openness and creativity. People from all parts of the globe transcended the thresholds of nationality, ethnicity and culture to celebrate music and love together in a very special way.
