Lecture by Clarissa Tossin RI '18

Free and open to the public.

As a Radclifffe fellow, Clarissa Tossin is working toward the installation Meeting of Waters, which investigates the manufacturing of mass-produced goods in the Free Trade Zone of Manaus in the Amazon forest and the traditional ways of making practiced by the indigenous communities in the region. With this project, the artist is furthering her interest in material culture production ecosystems and how they engage the body of the maker, the surrounding environment, and the use and value attributed to the production.
