About the Contributors:
Christina Pettersson was born in Stockholm, Sweden and grew up in Miami, Florida. Her large scale drawings, videos, installations and group performances focus on the hidden histories and environment of Florida. Public programming and collaborations have become central to her art practice, carrying her far out of her studio into the origins of these narratives.
Ombretta Agro’ Andruff is an Italian-born, Miami and Turin-based freelance curator and environmental activist, Ombretta brings more than twenty-five years of curatorial expertise with an international practice across non-profit institutions, commercial galleries, and art advisory pursuits with private clients. Ombretta employs 360-degree competence in all aspects of the contemporary art world and has served across numerous boards including IKT, the International Association of Contemporary Art Curators, for which she is currently Vice President, the Art in Public Places Committee for the City of Miami Beach, and is part of the Advisory Board of visionary organization Earth 300.
An avid swimmer, diver and kiteboarder, since moving to Miami in 2013, Ombretta’s passion for the Florida waterways inspired ARTSail. For more information, please visit https://www.artsail.info/
