Zero Hero Yolo Solo

September 17 – October 8, 2013
Institute of Contemporary Art Baltimore at Station North Chicken Box

Zero Hero Yolo Solo is a solo exhibition of new paintings by Baltimore artist Dominic Terlizzi at Chicken Box, a Station North art space. Dominic Terlizzi’s paintings are composed from casts of food and eating accessories—bread, pretzels, napkins, and crackers. They are playful and inventive, while formally referring to modern painting traditions. 

Dominic has exhibited his paintings and sculptures nationally, including exhibitions in Baltimore, New York, and Washington, D.C. He has recently been awarded a grant to create a permanent public sculpture in Baltimore’s Remington neighborhood through the PNC Bank Transformative Art Project, organized by the Baltimore Office of Promotion & the Arts. 

As a young artist, Dominic contributed a drawing to NASA’s “Visions of Mars” project, to which the collected contributions now rest in a time capsule on the surface of Mars. Dominic’s exhibition through ICA will include work never before exhibited and will be his first solo show in Baltimore.  

This exhibition will be the eighth of the ICA Baltimore's solo artist project since its inception in 2012, and its second Free Fall Baltimore project. We deeply appreciate the support of our donors who make Free Fall Baltimore possible.  Special thanks goes to the National Endowment for the Arts, the Maryland State Arts Council, American Trading and Production Corporation, The Abell Foundation, Henry and Ruth Blaustein Rosenberg Foundation, and Pearlstone Family Fund.
