WHEN: Thursday, September 8 (noon-11 PM), Friday, September 9, and Saturday, September 10, noon.-1 AM

A renovated space at 11 W. Chase Street, Baltimore*

Holy Sh*t is an exhibition that explores the idea of modern idolatry and reverence in the face of destruction, decay and consequent rebirth. This exhibition features the works by a diverse group of artists working in in a variety of media; including painting, sculpture, installation, prints and video. Given the current state of the American economy and nihilistic nature of the times we live in, it is important to consider the Holy things we cling to with hopes that they will pull us out of this mess—or pull us closer to extinction.

The Nomad Gallery curates public art performances and installations in once-empty storefronts and other abandoned spaces. In these spaces, while the building is in transition between owners, the gallery temporarily sets up pop- up exhibitions. Through the partnership of artists and building owners, they create low budget, DIY galleries that have the ability to pop up all over the city and tap into the potential of creative Baltimore thinkers and entrepreneurs. The goal of Nomad is to provide exposure for emerging artists, connect with many different neighborhoods and promote the arts in unexpected locations

The exhibition space was formerly home to a church, making it an ideal location for an exhibition of this nature. The team at Nomad have created a collaborative installation work that hearkens back to the space’s ecclesiastical history.
