Liliana Porter, Argentine (1941 - )

Liliana Porter

Born in Buenos Aires, Argentina, in 1941, Liliana Porter, studied printmaking at the Universidad Iberoamericana, Mexico City, in 1960 and graduated from the Escuela Nacional de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, in 1963. After moving to New York in 1964, Porter continued to experiment with printmaking at the Pratt Graphic Art Center. During this period she created technically innovative prints that employ Pop-art imagery to comment upon urban society.

A founder of the New York Graphic Workshop with Luis Camnitzer and José Guillermo Castillo in 1965, Porter concurrently became associated with the Conceptual Art movement. Inspired in part by the Argentine writer Jorge Luis Borges, she has investigated since the late 1960s the relationships between illusion, artistic representation, and reality in prints, paintings, and wall installations. She has consistently utilized print techniques such as photo-etching and photo-silk-screen in her work.

In the mid-1970s Porter began a series of mixed-medium works on paper and canvas depicting objects of childhood, images from Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking-glass, and reproductions of paintings from the Western artistic tradition. Though still a prolific printmaker, Porter has worked increasingly on canvas since the early 1980s and typically incorporates painting, silk-screen collage, and actual objects into these works.

Her one-person exhibitions include: Projects: Liliana Porter, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, (1973); the Fundación San Telmo, Buenos Aires, (1990); The Centro de Recepciones del Gobierno, San Juan, Puerto Rico (1991); and The Bronx Museum of the Arts, New York, (1992).

Her group exhibitions include: Information, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, (1970); Latin American Artists in New York since 1970, Archer M. Huntington Art Gallery, The University of Texas, Austin, (1987); The Latin American Spirit: Art and Artists in the United States, 1920-1970, The Bronx Museum of The Arts, New York, (1988); and The Decade Show: Frameworks of Identity in the 1980s, Museum of Contemporary Hispanic Art, The New Museum of Contemporary Art and The Studio Museum in Harlem, New York, (1990). Latin American Artists of the Twentieth Century, The Museum of Modern Art, New York, (1993).

Porter’s work is in the permanent collections of The Museum of Modern Art, New York, Centro de Arte Reina Sofia, Madrid, Museo de Bellas Artes, Buenos Aires, as well as in many private collections.
