A transcendental moment in Liliana Porter's life was her arrival in New York, where she was enraptured by the artistic experiences of pop art, minimalism and conceptualism. Similarly, the feminist movement, the anti-racist struggles, the demonstrations against the Vietnam War or the heyday of artists such as Bob Dylan made an impact on her, giving her enormous experiences to reflect on her work and the development of technique. Porter cites as influences in her work Luis Felipe Noe, Giorgio Morandi, Roy Lichtenstein, the Arte Povera group and the Guerrilla Girls, among others.
A multidisciplinary artist, Liliana Porter trained at the Manuel Belgrano National School in Buenos Aires and at the Prilidiano Pueyrredón National School of Fine Arts in the same city. She also attended the engraving workshop at the Escuela Superior de Bellas Artes de la Nación Ernesto de la Cárcova, directed at that time by the engraver Fernando López Anaya. From 1958 to 1961 he lived in Mexico City. In 1964, he traveled to New York where he has lived ever since. Together with artists Luis Camnitzer and José Guillermo Castillo, he co-founded The New York Graphic Workshop. He has exhibited his work in over 35 countries and in more than 450 group exhibitions including the Museum of Modern Art, the Whitney Museum of American Art, the New Museum, the Museo Tamayo, the Blanton Museum of Art, the J. Paul Getty Museum, CentroCentro (Madrid), among others. His work is part of private and public collections at the TATE Modern, Museum of Modern Art, Whitney Museum of American Art, Museo Nacional de Bellas Artes in Buenos Aires, Philadelphia Museum of Art, Museo de Bellas Artes in Santiago, Fogg Art Museum at Harvard University, Museo de Arte Moderno in Bogotá, Museo del Barrio, Metropolitan Museum of Art, Smithsonian American Art Museum, Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, and the Daros Collection.
