Considering the art of the everyday life, Estévez invites people to the Floating Library to “[talk] life and art while applying eye shadow and spreading PB&J on bread” in order to break down dichotomies such as art/life and audience/performer. The “improvisational encounter” will be an open, collaborative event; attendees are encouraged to participate through storytelling, discourse and gestures, for instance.
Nicolás Dumit Estévez “treads an elusive path that manifests itself through experiences where the quotidian and art overlap.” His work is presented widely worldwide including past exhibitions and performances at Madrid Abierto (ARCOmadrid 2005); 9ª Bienal de la Habana; Performa, New York; IDENSITAT; Prague Quadrennial of Performance Design and Space; Pontevedra Art Biennial; Queens Museum; Museum of Modern Art, New York; Printed Matter; Performance Space 122 (PS 122); Hemispheric Institute of Performance and Politics; Princeton University; Iris & B Gerald Cantor Film Center at New York University; The Institute for Art, Religion, and Social Justice at Union Theological Seminary; MacDowell Colony; Provisions Library; El Museo del Barrio; Anthology Film Archives; Elizabeth Foundation for the Arts; Center for Book Arts; Smithsonian National Museum of the American Indian; Franklin Furnace Archive, Inc.; and Lower Manhattan Cultural Council.
