Eve Sussman


‘89 Seconds at Alcazar’ is a new project by film/video artist Eve Sussman that brings Velzquez’s 1658 painting ‘Las Meninas’ to life in High Definition digital video. Imagine a cinema-verit recreation that illuminates the action leading up to and immediately following the eternal moment in the Spanish court painter’s masterwork. The installation premiered in the United States at the 2004 Whitney Biennial, New York.
