Las Hermanas Iglesias is the collaborative team of Lisa & Janelle Iglesias, sisters born to Dominican and Norwegian immigrants in Queens, NY. The collective’s moniker anchors their identity within the contexts of feminism, teamwork, and multiplicity. For the past 15 years, the two have maintained an interdisciplinary, category-blurring collaboration alongside their individual practices. Las Hermanas undertakes their collaboration while living in different cities, usually through formal and informal residencies and  extended on-site collaborative installations. Their practice has evolved to include a number of team efforts and variations such as our further collaboration with their mother, Bodhild. 

The team’s collaborative work has been exhibited at the Blanton Museum, El Museo del Barrio, Queens Museum, Abrons Art Center, ASU Art Museum, NMSU Art Museum, The Utah Museum of Fine Arts and others. Las Hermanas has been artists in residence at LMCC’s Paris program (France), Fanoon: Center for Print Research at VCUQ (Qatar), The New Roots Foundation (Guatemala) and the Textile Arts Center (US). Lisa Iglesias is an associate professor and chair of the Department of Art Studio at Mount Holyoke College and Janelle Iglesias is an assistant professor at University of California San Diego.
