Virtual Artist Talk – M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias

In conjunction with the exhibition M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias, we are thrilled to present a virtual talk with two of the artists featured in the exhibition, Janelle and Lisa Iglesias, who together collaborate as Las Hermanas Iglesias (“the Iglesias sisters” in Spanish). With their Norwegian-born mother, Bodhild Brendryen Iglesias, Las Hermanas Iglesias have created hand-knit and woven works inspired by familial traditions—Bodhild’s mother’s rag rugs, for example—and the drawings and weavings of Anni Albers, considered by many to be the mother of modern textiles. The works in M(other) Tongues are the product of a dialogic call and response between family members, a back-and-forth visual conversation where abstract motifs are translated from one medium into another.
