A day with Liliana Porter
Artists in dialogue


“In recent years, in parallel to photography and video, I have been making works on canvas, prints, drawings, collages and small installations. Many of these pieces represent a group of characters that are inanimate objects, toys, and figurines that I find at flea markets, antique stores, and other strange places. Objects have a double existence. On the one hand, they are mere appearance, insubstantial ornaments, but at the same time, they have a look that can be animated by the viewer, who through the object can project the tendency to endow things with interiority and identity. These “theatrical vignettes” are constructed as visual commentaries that speak of the human condition. I am interested in the simultaneity of humor and anguish, the banality and the possibility of meaning ”. _ LILIANA PORTER

Fundación´ace para el Arte Contemporáneo, with the sponsorship of Espacio Peisa and the collaboration of Arte Online, organized“A day with Liliana Porter”. This was a special event that took place on December 4, 2013 from 10:30 am to 5:00 pm at the foundation’s headquarters. The meeting found the participants to interact directly with one of the most interesting creators of international contemporary art.

The program included a lecture in which Liliana Porter spoke about her work and her creative process, as well as interacting with the attendees in a “hand-in-hand” format,  a networking lunch and a portfolio review- critiques session for 10 invited artists. These 10 Argentine or foreign artists residing in Argentina were selected by an open call. Through the Espacio Peisa Grant, they were able to attend the event and present their work, enriching their practice throughout Liliana´s critique and work review.

Buenos Aires is Argentine Republic's capital city. With 15,000,000 inhabitants, it is one of the largest cities in Latin America and one of the 10 most populous urban centers in the world. Its cosmopolitan and urban character vibrates to the rhythm of a great cultural offer that includes monuments, churches, museums, art galleries, opera, music and theaters; squares, parks and gardens with old groves; characteristic neighborhoods; large shopping centers and fairs. Here we also find a very good lodging facilities, with accommodation ranging from hostels to five-star hotels of the main international chains. Buenos Aires also show off about its variety of restaurants with all the cuisines of the world, as well as to have cafes and flower kiosks on every corner.

A neighborhood founded on the Jesuit farms in the 17th century

We are located in Colegiales neighborhood where the tree-lined streets, some of which still have their original cobblestones, invite you to walk. Although the apartment buildings advance, low houses still predominate. It is a district of the city where about 20 TV production companies, design studios, artist workshops and the Rock&Pop radio have been located. The neighborhood also has six squares, one of which pays homage to Mafalda, the Flea Market, shops, restaurants and cafes like its neighboring Barrios de Palermo and Belgrano, with which it limits.
