Argentina-born and New York–based artist Liliana Porter is known for her use of objects as protagonists in seemingly charming but often subversive works, from large sculptural installations to films. Affiliated with the pioneering wave of Latinx artists, Porter’s work was represented in the Pavilion of Time and Infinity, part of curator Christine Macel’s Viva Arte Viva exhibition at the 2017 Venice Biennale, and is included in the 2018 exhibition Radical Women: Latin American Art, 1960–1985 at the Brooklyn Museum in New York and the Hammer in Los Angeles, California.

For this Tuesday Evenings presentation, Porter presents work from across her industrious career and ideas such as her interest in “the simultaneity of humor and distress, banality and possibility of meaning.

Tuesdays Evenings at The Modern is a popular series of lectures and presentations by artists, architects, historians, and critics. Café Modern serves cocktails, salads, and appetizers on Tuesday nights during the lecture series.
