about the exhibition
New Works 13.2
July 11–September 15, 2013Originally from Brazil, a Museum of Fine Arts Houston Core Program fellowship brought Clarissa Tossin to Houston, Texas in 2010. Through photography, drawing, sculpture, performance, and video, Tossin’s work explores the unseen aspects of modernity, urban life, and global identity. She holds an MFA from the California Institute of the Arts, and her work has been included in solo and group exhibitions worldwide, including most recently a 2013 commission on view at the Blaffer Art Museum in Houston, TX, Blind Spot: Window into Houston Clarissa Tossin. Earlier this year, her work could be seen at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Detroit as a part of CCA Wattis Institute’s traveling exhibition, When Attitudes Became Form Become Attitudes, and will be included in a forthcoming publication.
