While they now live on opposite ends of the country, Janelle and Lisa Iglesias—the daughters of Norwegian and Dominican immigrant parents—honor their heritage and their mother's love of knitting in this project-based installation featuring hand-knit and woven works inspired by familial traditions, including their grandmother's mother’s rag rugs and the drawings and weavings of modern textile pioneer Anni Albers. "Displayed on an architectural frame that can be seen from multiple angles, the intergenerational team privilege different visual perspectives, and highlight the process through which the works are made," writes the museum.
