My work includes photography, video, painting, drawing, installation, and public art projects. In the last decade I have been working with a cast of characters. They are inanimate objects, toys, and figurines. They have a double existence, on the one hand they are mere appearance, insubstantial ornaments, but at the same time have a gaze that can be animated by the viewer, who, through it, can project the inclination to endow things with an interiority and identity. These “theatrical vignettes” are constructed as visual comments of the human condition.
LILIANA PORTER (Born in Argentina, 1941 / Resides in New York since 1964)
Liliana Porter works across mediums in printmaking, works on canvas, photography, video, installations, and public art projects. In 1965 she co-founded the New York Graphic Workshop along with artists Luis Camnitzer and Jose Guillermo Castillo. 1980 Guggenheim Fellow, Porter was also the recipient of three New York Foundation for the Arts Fellowship (1985, 1996, 1999), the Mid Atlantic/NEA Regional Fellowship (1994), and seven PSC- CUNY research awards (from 1994 to 2004). In 1991 she became a professor at Queens College, CUNY, where she taught until 2007.
Porter’s works have been shown nationally and internationally. Most recently her work was featured in “The Incongruous Image – Marcel Broodthaers and Liliana Porter” at the New Museum in NYC, 6 VentoSul - Bienal de Curitiba in Brasil, “Otherworldly” at the Museum of Arts and Design in NYC, as well as in shows in Bogota, Sao Paulo, New York, Chicago, Houston, Boston, Madrid, Paris, Lisbon, and Lima. In 2009 - 2010 Porter’s work was featured in a major solo retrospective at El Museo Tamayo in Mexico City - "Liliana Porter- Línea de Tiempo / Timeline". Other recent group exhibitions include “The New York Graphic Workshop 1964 – 1970” at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, TX; “Larger than Life - Stranger than Fiction: 11th Triennial of Small Sculpture” in Fellbach, Germany; and in shows at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC; Centro Cultural Recoleta in Buenos Aires; The Aldrich Contemporary Art Museum in Ridgefield, CT; and the Sharjah Biennial in the United Arab Emirates. In 2010 Porter, in collaboration with Ana Tiscornia, created a public art installation with MTA for the Scarborough Metro North Rail Station, and has completed public art projects for Public School IS 96 in conjunction with NYC Department of Cultural Affairs, NYC Subway System, Miami River Walk, and Tren Urbano in San Juan. In 2009 she created a web project for the DIA Art Foundation.
