The Museum's newest exhibition features a series of works titled M(other) Tongues: Bodhild and Las Hermanas Iglesias, created by a family of women artists—Bodhild, Janelle, and Lisa Iglesias—with roots in Norway and the Dominican Republic. Here, the artists discuss mothers, memory, and transnational identity.
Let’s face it: winter in the Northwest is hard work. Weathering the onslaught of grey skies and record-breaking downpours has become a part of the region’s identity to some, and a hard-won badge of honor for many. Still, between the cold, the wet, and the lack of Vitamin D, it can be hard not to spend the months between October and May huddled indoors, dreaming of sunnier days.
Filmed in the far north of Norway, the short film Koppmoll shows how history reveals itself in the present. In the film, we follow the writer Damon Falke as he visits a family who are forever marked by the memories of World War II. Director Charles M. Pepiton and writer Damon Falke describe their own interpretations of Koppmoll.
