5:00 PM Performance: Las Hermanas Iglesias Las Hermanas Iglesias is the project-based collaboration of artists and sisters Lisa and Janelle Iglesias. As the children of Norwegian and Dominican immigrants who grew up in Queens, New York City, their project-based, trans-disciplinary work explores issues of hybridity, social participation and transnational identities. Through employing playful structures that respond to the community and geographical context of each project, Las Hermanas create artworks that disrupt borders, engage absurdity, and promote the benefits of working together.

It connects the archaeological and historical record with living cultures and native plant specialists who share their ever-relevant wisdom for future generations.
