Unfortunately my pass for the press day did not get through, so for the moment I share the press release about this year's edition
Announcing the Selected Artists From Submissions For Juried Plots, BURN2 2013Press Contact: Mia Quinote
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASEWednesday, August 11, 2013
BURN2 is happy to announce the 2013 Juried Art and Theme Camp plot winners! We had 19 applicants this year who submitted proposals to amaze us, engage us, and energize the playa with their amazing builds! You’ll see artists who have never been on the playa before, as well as seasoned artists who generously create participatory art over the years; artists whom we have grown to love. You can see these artists and more when the gates open at BURN2 for a week of creative celebration and festivities starting October 19th! We’re planning a full week and we’re getting very excited in the planning stages with everything coming together for a great event!
Thank you EVERYONE who submitted applications for these plots. Your ideas ARE AMAZING, and it did not make for an easy decision process. For those who submitted, we want to let you know it’s not too late to grab your own plot and build your camp.
