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. Her work has been exhibited widely, including in the exhibition Pacha, Llaqta, Wasichay: Indigenous Space, Modern Architecture, New Art at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York (2018), and in the Twelfth 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 Alternos: Art and Science Fiction in the Americas at the UCR/California Museum of Photography, which will travel to the Queens Museum in 2019. As a Radcliffe Institute Fellow at Harvard University, Tossin worked towards the installation Encontro das Águas (Meeting of Waters), which became the subject of a solo exhibition at the Blanton Museum of Art in Austin, TX. The project unfolded into a new exhibition, Future Fossil (2019), commissioned by the Radcliffe Institute of Advanced Study at Harvard University. Tossin's work has been exhibited domestically at the CCA Wattis Institute for Contemporary Arts, San Francisco; Ezra and Cecile Zilkha Gallery, Wesleyan University, Middletown, CT; Hammer Museum, Los Angeles; Museum of Contemporary Art Detroit, Detroit; Museum of Latin American Art, Long Beach, CA; SITE Santa Fe, Santa Fe, NM; Queens Museum, New York; and internationally at the Center for Contemporary Art, Tel Aviv, Israel; Iberê Camargo Foundation, Porto Alegre, Brazil; La Kunsthalle Mulhouse, Mullhouse, France; SESC Pompéia, São Paulo, Brazil; and Skulpturenmuseum Glaskasten Marl, Marl, Germany. Tossin holds an M.F.A. from the California Institute of Arts.
