After completing her art studies at the Catholic University of Peru in Lima (1962–1964), Burga turned to experimental forms of art.

She joined the group Arte Nuevo (New Art) during 1966–1967, who paved the way for a radical redefinition of the artistic landscape in Peru. While at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago on a Fulbright Scholarship (1968–1970), she concerned herself with ephemeral conceptual approaches and, after returning home, became one of the early representatives of installation art in Peru. In the nineteenseventies, complex analytical works followed, which explored the nature and modus operandi of language and various forms of information.
