Artist Bio

Eve Sussman (born in 1961) incorporates film, video, sculpture, and architecture in her work. In 2003, she
founded Rufus Corporation, an ad hoc think-tank of collaborators whose video installation 89 Seconds at
Alcazar (2004) premiered to international acclaim at the 2004 Whitney Biennial. The twelve minute looping
video is an imaginative recreation of Velázquez’s painting Las Meninas (1656). Other works by Rufus
Corporation include The Rape of the Sabine Women (2006) and an experimental algorithm-generated movie,
whiteonwhite:algorithmicnoir (2011). Sussman’s work has been shown internationally in exhibitions at the Bass
Museum of Art, Miami; Leeum, Samsung Museum of Art, Seoul, Korea; Louisiana Museum of Modern Art,
Humlebæk, Denmark; Musée d’art contemporain de Montréal, Canada; Museum of Modern Art, New York;
The National Gallery, London, UK; Museo Nacional Centro de Arte Reina Sofía, Madrid, Spain; and Whitney
Museum of American Art, New York.
