The Jury of Media Forum


Eve Sussman

Ms. Sussman has come a long way from her solo debut at the Bronwyn Keenan Gallery in SoHo in 1997, where she showed funky, live-feed video broadcasts of pigeons roosting in the building’s airshaft. By 2004, she had replaced Discovery Channel Post- Minimalism with Masterpiece Theater grandeur in “89 Seconds at Alcazar,” a mesmerizing 10-minute video projection that wended its way through what appeared to be a modeling session for Velazquez’s elaborate painting “Las Meninas.” Fraught with whispered exchanges, rustling silks and discreet gestures, this piece became the breakout hit of the 2004 Whitney Biennial.
