Liliana Farber was born in Montevideo, Uruguay and currently lives and works in New York. Farber’s artworks examine knowledge production within global scale infrastructures. Her still and moving images, sculptures, and web-based works explore the histories, and design ramifications of common digital systems. She uses timestamps, geolocation points, satellite imagery, old maps, and literature as raw materials for minimal works. Abstract and entangled, the resulting pieces are failed data visualizations that contrast that sense of being lost or disconnected in a hyper mapped and connected world.
Farber’s work was exhibited at The National Museum of Contemporary Art, Lisbon; The Center for Books Art, New York; Ars Electronica Festival, Linz, Austria; Arebyte Gallery, London; Panke Gallery, Berlin; The National Museum of Fine Arts, Santiago, Chile; The National Museum of Visual Arts, Montevideo, Uruguay; WRO Media Art Biennale, Wrocland, Poland; Oblique Nuage Gallery, Paris; 1708 Gallery, Richmond, V.A, USA; and Raw Art Gallery, Tel Aviv, among others.
Farber is a recipient of the Lumen Prize for Art and Technology, UK; The Network Culture Award from Stuttgarter Filmwinter Festival, Germany; Artis grant, USA; and Asylum Arts grant, USA. Her artworks have been featured in On Curating, Switzerland; MIT’s Leonardo Journal, USA; Erev-Rav, Israel; Haaretz, Israel; and El Pais, Uruguay. She holds an MFA from Parsons School of Design, New York; Postgraduate Fine Art Studies from Hamidrasha School of Art, Israel; and a B.A in Graphic Design from O.R.T University, Uruguay.
