Las Hermanas Iglesias

Based on opposite U.S. coasts, sisters Lisa and Janelle Iglesias collaborate artistically under the name Las Hermanas Iglesias, in addition to their individual practices. Their Contemporary Project will debut related textiles, collages, and sculpture that explore caregiving as part of a complex network of social issues. Like many of Las Hermanas Iglesias’ previous projects, the exhibition melds cultural references, including to the Dominican Republic and Norway, their parents’ home countries, with personal experiences, most recently their navigations of fertility, pregnancy, loss, and birth. Both sisters gave birth during the COVID-19 pandemic, which reframed caregiving as essential work and brought parenting-related concerns, including access to childcare, family leave, and reproductive healthcare, to the surface.
