ICA Baltimore is pleased to announce Humanoid Boogy, a retrospective spanning forty years of work by the artist William S. Dutterer. The exhibition will be on view at 1407 Fleet Street (the former Broom Corn Building) from April 10-May 22, 2014. An opening reception will be held April 10, 2014 from 6:30–9:00pm. Humanoid Boogy is curated by Caitlin Tucker- Melvin for the ICA Baltimore in partnership with the Estate of William S. Dutterer—the exhibition is Tucker-Melvin’s graduate thesis for the Curatorial Practice MFA at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA).

Humanoid Boogy highlights Dutterer’s work through a thematic display that spans from his early days as a MICA student to his last works. The exhibition includes painting, drawing, relief sculpture, prints, and book art. Over his lifetime, Dutterer created a vast body of work depicting eccentric worlds populated by ghostly trains, wrapped heads, and fantastical underwater creatures. William S. Dutterer, a Maryland native, was a graduate of the inaugural class of MICA’s prestigious Hoffberger School of Painting and taught for twenty years at the Corcoran College of Art. Dutterer passed in 2007; his estate is run by his wife Jamie Johnson-Dutterer. Programming for the exhibition will include a panel
discussion with Walter Lehmann, Robert Stackhouse, and Jamie Johnson-Dutterer on the issue of artist’s estates.
