Exhibition comprising an important selection of works of artist Liliana Porter (b. Buenos Aires 1941) made between 1968 and 1975 -engravings and art- and from objects from the collection Daros Latinamerica, installations recreated by the artist in one of the galleries of the MNAV and photographic works in from her collection exhibited along a set of current works, created specially by Porter for this project. In 1964, a young Liliana Porter (b. Buenos Aires 1941) arrived in New York in a stopover on a journey bound for Paris. She was captured by the energy and vibrant cultural life of the city and the trip to France was postponed. She settled in the United States where, without having imagined it, she became a precursor of Latin American conceptual art. The exhibition presents a collection of works by the artist made at that particular moment of personal and creative maturation that represents a germinal state of Porter’s later artistic production. From the perspective of her current works, created for this project, she reflects on this early stage of her artistic life, and the philosophical, ethical and aesthetic line that has followed her work during the subsequent forty years. This third solo exhibition of Liliana Porter in Montevideo comprises a revealing selection of works that will allow us to immerse ourselves in the past and present of this great artist’s fascinating world.
