Exhibition: Clarissa Tossin, “Stereoscopic Vision”

From the CFA:

We see in stereo: each eye registers something different, and the information contained in each is then stitched together in our brains, resulting in a three-dimensional visualization—something more complex, and greater in meaning, than when read as two separate images.

“Stereoscopic Vision,” the Brazilian-born, Los Angeles-based artist Clarissa Tossin‘s first solo exhibition in the Northeast, features key objects in photography, sculpture, and video from several bodies of work to highlight the dualities between natural and manufactured; two and three-dimensions; co-dependent economies; intention and actuality; and the United States and Brazil.

Support for this exhibition provided by Wesleyan University’s College of the Environment and the Department of Art and Art History.

The opening reception for this exhibition is on Tuesday, January 31 at 4:30 PM in the Zilkha Gallery.

Exhibition Dates: Tuesday, January 31 through Sunday, March 5
Times Open: Tuesday-Sunday, 12-5 PM
Place: Zilkha Gallery
