Sandra Cinto: Chance and Necessity

January 15 – March 5, 2016
USF Contemporary Art Museum
West Gallery

Concurrent with Histórias, São Paulo-based artist Sandra Cinto will design a site-specific installation for CAM’s West Gallery. Cinto is known for her dramatic scenarios incorporating water, the night sky and billowing seas, that transform exhibition spaces into places of meditation on the passing of time and the relationship of humans to nature.

Curated by USFCAM Curator Noel Smith, with Dr. Agnaldo Farias, University of São Paulo; organized by USF Contemporary Art Museum. Exhibition sponsored in part by a grant from the Arts Council of Hillsborough County and the Board of Hillsborough County Commissioners, the USF Institute for the Study of Latin America and the Caribbean, USF World, and The Gobioff Foundation.

For Chance and Necessity, Sandra Cinto created the series Chance and Necessity with USF Graphicstudio.
