About the event
Clarissa Tossin is a visual artist who uses installation, video, performance, sculpture, photography and collaborative research to negotiate hybridization of cultures and the persistence of difference. By embracing semantic displacements in given material cultural ecosystems, Tossin's work reflects on circulation from the level of the body to the global industry. Recent solo exhibitions include Future Fossil (2019) at Harvard Radcliffe Institute and Encontro das Águas (2018) at the Blanton Museum of Art (Austin, USA).
