Clarissa Tossin is a visual artist who uses installation, video, performance, sculpture, and photography 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.
Tossin's has been exhibited widely, including in the exhibition Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modem Architecture, New Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (2018), and in the 12th Gwangju Biennale in Gwangju, South Korea (2018). In 2017, Tossin received a commission from the city of Los Angeles as part of Pacific Standard Time: LA/LA for the exhibition Condemned to be Modern at the Los Angeles Municipal Art Gallery. Also in conjunction with PST: LA/LA, her work was included in the exhibition Mundos Altemos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas at the VCR/California Museum of Photography, which will travel to the Queens Museum in 2019.
All lectures are free, open to the public, and presented online. RSVP required.
