Fox In The Mirror: A Concert explores human vulnerability and frailty through a narrative of animated ceramic and plastic figurines. Structured in movements like a symphony, the playful yet haunting work incorporates references to failed marriages, torture, and totalitarianism. It includes a moving score written and recorded by Porter's long-time collaborator, Sylvia Meyer.

Liliana Porter was born in Argentina, 1941, and has lived in New York since 1964. One of the most significant living Latin-American women artists, her art is in many major international collections, including the Tate Modern in London, MOMA in New York, La Bibliotèque Nationale in Paris, and the Museo de Arte Moderno in Buenos Aires. Porter was a Professor at Queens College, City University of New York, from 1991 to 2007.

The CU Art Museum’s Permanent Collection includes major works of video art, which will be featured on a rotating basis in the new CU Art Museum video gallery.
