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.

Simon Lee (born 1956) works in photography, video and installation. His work is said to often be “a powerful metaphor for the random flow of history and a low tech formal tour de force” (Holland Cotter, New York Times). His 2010 film collaboration with Algis Kizys, Where is the Black Beast? (2010) was shown at the Sagamore Collection in Miami, Zebra Poetry Film Festival Berlin, IFC Center in New York, and was an official selection at the 2011 Rotterdam Film Festival. Together with Sussman, he co-founded the “Wallabout Oyster Theater,” a micro-theater space run out of their studios in Brooklyn. Lee has exhibited at the Brooklyn Museum of Art; The Berkshire Museum, MA; Roebling Hall, New York; the Moscow International Film Festival; Musée d’Art Contemporain de Montreal; Poznan Biennale, Poland; The Rotunda Gallery, Brooklyn NY; Tinguely Museum, Basel, Switzerland; Espace Paul Ricard, Paris, France; and The Whitney Museum of American Art, New York.
