Talk | Artist Talk: Dominican Iconography (online)


Nicolás Dumit Estévez Raful Espejo Ovalles’s research on the Virgin of Altagracia’s iconography, the spiritual protector of many in the Dominican Republic, as well as Haiti and the diaspora. Through Visioning the Brown Mother, an experiential excavation of HSM&L’s collection of images of the Mother exported/imposed to the so-called new world, Visioning the Brown Mother seeks to decolonize this iconography in varied geo-political perspectives through one-on-one dialogues/reflections, and through spontaneous in-person exchanges in the streets of the City. Nicolás’s one-person pilgrimage from his home in the South Bronx to Washington Heights (also home to the Hispanic Society), two enclaves of Dominican presence in New York City, takes into consideration a back and forth between these two loci informing one another culturally. Nicolás was born in the Dominican Republic. He threads an elusive path that manifests itself performatively or through experiences where the quotidian and art overlap. Many of his work is ephemeral as it is the experience of engaging with it. Nicolás’s creative praxis often includes community involvement and/or religious/spiritual questioning.
