Arca was born in Caracas, Venezuela. Her father was an investment banker and her mother studied International Studies. Her family moved to Connecticut for a time, before returning to Venezuela, where she was privately educated and was introduced to piano lessons. She released music in her teen years by the name of Nuuro, and received moderate popularity in her home country, with praise from big national artists such as Los Amigos Invisibles. She later attended the Clive Davis Institute of Recorded Music at NYU.
On 1 February 2012, Arca released her debut extended play (EP), Baron Libre, through UNO NYC. Later that year, she released the Stretch 1 and Stretch 2 EPs on 19 April and 6 August respectively.
In 2013, Arca was credited for additional production, programming and songwriting for five of the songs on Kanye West's Yeezus, which was released on 18 June. She also served as one of the three production consultants. That same year on 23 July, she released her &&&&& mixtape through SoundCloud and Hippos in Tanks. The project included an audio-visual performance alongside Jesse Kanda, who contributed the visuals, at MoMA PS1 in October 2013. On 17 September, FKA Twigs' EP2 was released, on which Arca produced and co-wrote every song.
Her debut studio album, Xen, was released on 4 November 2014 via Mute Records. Arca made significant contributions to Björk's ninth studio album Vulnicura which was released on 20 January 2015.

Later in 2017, Arca collaborated with Björk again on her ninth studio album Utopia, who co-produced the vast majority of the record. Björk explained that the album explored "the Arca-Björk overlap." A music video featuring Arca for "Arisen My Senses" was released on 18 December 2017. Arca also collaborated with Kelela on her debut studio album, Take Me Apart, released in October 2017.
