HOPE (2011)

Linda Mary Montano and Nicolas Dumit Estevez make themselves available for three days as walking billboards on which individuals and groups from different Bronx neighborhoods can write their hopes. The artists toured various neighborhoods in the Bronx for three days and asked both groups and individuals to write messages of hope on their clothing. This performance was presented as part of ‘Born Again: A Lebanese-Dominican Dominican York is born again as a Bronxite’ and ‘Eight Artists Respond to Born Again,’ curated by Nicolas Dumit Estevez for Longwood Art Gallery/Bronx Council on The Arts.
