Clarissa Tossin is a Los Angeles-based, Brazilian artist using moving-image, installation, sculpture, and collaborative research to engage suppressed counter-narratives implicit in the built and natural environments of extractive economies. Tossin centers underrecognized histories that come to define a place, while preserving evidence of cultural difference, resistance, and transformation. Tossin is the recipient of a Graham Foundation Grant (2020); Foundation for Contemporary Arts Grant (2019); an Artadia Los Angeles Award (2018); and a Juméx Foundation Research Grant (2018), among others. She has been a Fellow with the Contemporary Art Fellowship (2019); and at the Radcliffe Institute for Advanced Study at Harvard University (2017–18). Recent solo exhibitions include Falling from Earth (2022) at the Museum of Contemporary Art (MCA) Denver; Disorientation Towards Collapse (2022) at Commonwealth and Council, Los Angeles; Circumnavigation Towards Exhaustion (2021) at La Kunsthalle Mulhouse in France, among others.
