Tina La Porta is a media artist who lives and works in New York City. Some of her most recent work has been created specifically for the internet. She has been commissioned by the Whitney Museum of American Art, The Alternative Museum and turbulence.org to create web-specific art projects.

The overall conceptual focus of her artwork is an "exploration of the impact communication technologies have on expressions of identity … to make art which comments on our lives and the shifting perceptions of ourselves in this technological age."

She has recently exhibited her work at Whitebox/The Annex, NYC; Universal Concepts Unlimited, NYC and Karsi Sanat Galerisi, in Istanbul Turkey.

Her work has been included in "Violencia sin cuerpos" (Violence Without Bodies), Museo Nacional Centro de Art Reina Sofia, Madrid, Spain, as well as "Web As Performance Space", Institute of Contemporary Arts, London, England; Fotofest’s "net.art" exhibition "Telematic Connections: The Virtual Embrace," at the San Francisco Art Institute; "Festival Internacional de Linguagem Eletronica," Museu da Imagem e do Som: São Paulo, Brazil; "Miradas Impudicas," Centre Cultural de la Fundació "la Caixa": Barcelona, Spain and "Body as Byte," at Neues Kunstmuseum Luzern, Switzerland.
