Eve Sussman | Rufus Corporation Opening Reception

Eve Sussman Rufus Corporation Opening ReceptionThursday, April 11, 7-9pm – BASS Museum of Art, 2100 Collins Avenue, Miami Beach

Eve Sussman | Rufus Corporation is a presentation of the video artist’s recent projects at BASS Museum of Art. This exhibition will present two major video installations, including an entirely new exploration of her noted film The Rape of the Sabine Women. A feature-length video-musical, The Rape of the Sabine Women is a contemporary reinterpretation of the eponymous Roman legend in a domestic 1960s setting, which Sussman has transformed into a five-part video installation. Also on view will be her 89 Seconds at Alcázar, a film based on the Diego Velázquez’s enigmatic Las Meninas, 1656. In this work, Sussman uses film to elucidate the circumstances of the exact moment that the painting aims to portray, a moment that has become immortalized in one of the most important paintings in art history. Complimentary valet parking.  Eve Sussman | Rufus Corporation on view April 12 – August 11, 2013.  For more information, call 305-673-7530 ext. 1010 or email mbrown@bassmuseum.org.
