A nonlinear survey of Liliana Porter, with special emphasis on her recent theatrical work
New York–based Argentinian artist Liliana Porter (born 1941) works across a range of mediums such as printmaking, sculpture, photography and, more recently, performance, to explore the conflicting boundaries between reality and fiction. Other Situations offers a descriptive account of the eponymous exhibition, a nonlinear survey of Porter’s work, organized by the SCAD Museum of Art in Savannah, Georgia, in 2017. It also includes documentation from her play, Them, which was specially commissioned for the show and performed in New York at The Kitchen in 2018 when Other Situations traveled from the SCAD Museum of Art to El Museo del Barrio. This is the first publication to incorporate material related to the artist's theatrical work, a central element that serves as a gateway to understanding the exhibition and the body of work that composes it.
