PRESENTATION: EVE SUSSMAN
Eve Sussman, Artist
Eve Sussman is a Brooklyn-based artist working in film, video, and installation. Sussman will present a preview of 89 seconds Atomized, a re-invention of her well-known video artwork, 89 Seconds at Alcázar. 89 Seconds at Alcázar is a continuous seamlessly looping video that imagines that space and the characters in Diego Velazquez’s painting Las Meninas. It was first shown at the 2004 Whitney Biennial. All editions of the piece are in museums (MoMA, Whitney) or private collections. Sussman is now appropriating her last artist proof to make a new work: 89 seconds Atomized, and presenting it to the crypto community via an interactive project on the blockchain in collaboration with Snark.art. The artist will tell the back-story of this project and give a preview of this blockchain experiment.
