Bodhild, Janelle and Lisa Iglesias are a mother/daughters visual arts collective working together as Familien Iglesias. The name Familien Iglesias translates to "The Iglesias family" in Norwegian, speaking to our roots in Norway and the Dominican Republic, voicing our relationship to multiplicity, immigration and collaboration.

Familien Iglesias has been awarded with a residency at the Textile Arts Center (TAC) in Brooklyn, NY. We are raising funds to help cover costs associated with this 9-month program and exhibition and appreciate any donation that you can share towards our projects with TAC. This is Bodhild's first experience with an arts community as well as an opportunity for each of us to learn ways to expand the participatory aspects of our collaborative projects.

Familien Iglesias make interdisciplinary projects and utilize a wide range of collaborative strategies in the process of working together. In the past, we've collaborated on a series of Nude Suits, performed in a knit conjoined dress, conducted a series of competitions refereed by Bodhild and most recently, developed a series of Knit Paintings.

We're excited to develop new work at the Textile Arts Center AIR Cycle 10 and to share these projects publicly through workshops and the exhibition at the close of the residency. Bodhild comes to the TAC residency with a deep knowledge of hand knitting and all three of us have introductory knowledge of weaving, screen printing and sewing. A TAC residency will enable Familien Iglesias to expand our experience and skill with these fiber traditions and introduce us to machine knitting and more extensive dye techniques. Most importantly, the TAC residency will welcome us into a new family of textile artists, teachers and mentors as well as strengthen our understandings of how to activate our collaboration to engage more directly with our communities.

With your donation, we will be able to fund tuition, materials and travel costs. We appreciate your partnership in this project and we're excited to share artworks with you in exchange.

TEXTILE ARTS CENTER:

Textile Arts Center (TAC) is a NYC-based resource facility dedicated to raising awareness and understanding of textiles through creative educational programs for children and adults. TAC aspires to unite the textile community and advocate for the handmade by providing accessible, skills-based classes that reinvigorate engagement with traditional crafts.

Textile Arts Center's Artist in Residence (TAC AIR) program equips emerging artists and designers with resources and skills to better articulate their practices and contribute to their communities. Situated at the intersection of a studio residency and an academic program, TAC AIR combines studio access with a rigorous interdisciplinary curriculum, regular critical dialogue and mentorship. The residency culminates in a group exhibition hosted by TAC together with a partner gallery, which showcases and promotes residents’ work at both a regional and national level.

Risks and challenges

Participating in this residency is accompanied by a welcome set of challenges and opportunities for learning.
Bodhild, Janelle and Lisa will be collaborating from across the country - Janelle's home and studio are in San Diego, CA and Lisa teaches at the University of Florida in Gainesville. Bodhild lives in Queens, NY and will be the main physical participant at the Textile Arts Center for the majority of the time. We plan to collectively work together through a range of approaches (travel, internet conferencing, phone calls and postal service exchanges) and are excited to develop new work together in this exciting context.

Thank you so much for being a part of this project!
Please be in touch if you have any feedback or questions
