The editorial categories are research topics that have guided researchers during the recovery phase and continue to be the impetus behind the Documents Project’s digital archive and the Critical Documents book series. Developed by the project’s Editorial Board, each of the teams analyzed this framework and adapted it to their local contexts in developing their research objectives and work plans during the Recovery Phase.

The text by Armando Zegrí in the catalog for the 11th Annual Exhibition of Latin American Prints (New York: Zegri Gallery, January 5–February 4, 1965) states that fifty artists from eleven Latin American countries took part in the exhibition. In his view, the large numbers as well as the range of works presented were capable of providing an overview of Latin America printmaking at that time.
Liliana Porter (b. 1941) was among the Argentine artists to participate in the 11th Annual Exhibition of Latin American Prints (New York: Zegrí Gallery, January 5–February 4, 1965). Porter, along with Luis Camnitzer (b. 1937), who represented Uruguay at this exhibition, and José Guillermo Castillo (b. 1938), founded the NYGW (New York Graphic Workshop) between 1964 and 1965, which was before the time of the show.In addition to Liliana Porter, the following artists participated in the 11th Annual Exhibition of Latin American Prints: Alda María Armagni, Carmen Gracía, Mabel Rubli, Daniel Zelaya, Jorge G. Luna Ercilla, Carlos Scannapiesco, Osvaldo Romberg, Albino Fernández, and Delia del Carril, representing Argentina; Marina Caram, Roland Cabot, and Lívio Abramo (Brazil); Roser Bru, Dinora, Florencia de Amesti, Simona Chambelland, Mario Toral, Eduardo Vilches, Lea Kleiner, Jaime Cruz, Juan Downey, Eugenio Tellez, Carlos Ortuzar, and Jorge González Tornero (Chile); Omar Rayo and Enrique Sánchez (Colombia); Emilio Sánchez, Wilfredo Lam, Daniel Serra-Badué, and Guido Llinás (Cuba); Roberto Cabrera (Guatemala); Francisco Dosamantes, Raúl Anguiano, Reyes Mesa, Héctor Xavier, and Rufino Tamayo (Mexico); Julio Augusto Zachrisson (Panama); Edith Jiménez (Paraguay); Francisco Espinoza and Maria Scholten (Peru); Lorenzo Homar, Rafael Tufiño, José Alicea, Myrna Baez, John Balossi, Antonio Martorell, R. Ferrer, César Irizarry, Luis Hernández, and Rivero (Puerto Rico), and Luis Camnitzer, José Gamarra, and Giancarlo Puppo (Uruguay). This document provides an account of the first exhibitions in which Porter participated shortly after she permanently settled in New York City.
