Born Again: A Lebanese-Dominican Dominican York is born again as a Bronxite focuses on Estevez’s time spent with groups and individuals in the Bronx and unearthing the perceptions and misperceptions that have shaped the identity of the borough since the 1960s.

In Eight Artists Respond to Born Again the show’s artists play off Estevez’s quest for these perceptions by bringing Bronxites’ perspectives and voices on the subject to the gallery.Artists include: Michael Paul Britto, Kathleena Howie-García (Lady k-Fever), Nancy Hwang and wowe, Norene Leddy and Melissa Gira Grant, Ivan Monforte, and Linda Mary Montano.

This show was conceived by Nicolas Dumit Estevez for the Bronx Council on the Arts’ Longwood Art Gallery @ Hostos and presented in collaboration with Bronx River Alliance, El Museo del Barrio, Banana Kelly High School, Lehman College Art Gallery, and two programs from Phipps Community Development Corporation: Drew Gardens and La Casa de Felicidad, among others.
