Brooklyn-based Eve Sussman founded the Rufus Corporation, an ad hoc group of artists, dancers, actors and musicians who create videos, photographs and live events, in 2003. This volume compiles film stills from two works for which Sussman and her collaborators are most known. "89 Seconds at Alcázar" (2004) is a high-definition video tableau inspired by Diego Velázquez's painting "Las Meninas" (1656). The piece focuses on the 89 seconds when the Spanish royal family and their courtiers would have been in the exact configuration portrayed in the painting. The Rape of the Sabine Women--featuring a mesmerizing score composed by Jonathan Bepler--is an allegorical video that conflates the myth of Romulus' founding of Rome with David's painting "Intervention of the Sabine Women" (1796-99). It is set in an idealized, cinematic version of the 1960s that includes G-men and a decadent party in a chic International Style summer home.

Publication accompanying the first solo exhibition in Canada of Brooklyn-based artist Eve Sussman and her collaborative team Rufus Corporation. Together they produce interrelated films and videos, photographs and installations developed on numerous journeys through Russia and Central Asia. The focus here is the film installation whiteonwhite: algorithmicnoir, which draws on the radial abstractions and reflections on transcendence of Kasimir Malevich, and the fate of Russian astronaut Yuri Gagarin, seen through the lens of science fiction and film noir cinematography. Generated by algorithm, edited in real time and heavily informed by such twentieth-century filmmakers as Jean-Luc Godard and Wim Wenders, the work is a fascinating investigation into space and time, utopia and dystopia, fractured narration and landscapes marked by economic and ecological upheaval. Also featured is a photo series by Simon Lee created during the production. In English and French. Eve Sussman founded the Rufus Corporation in 2003. Rufus Corporation's works have been exhibited and screened internationally and are included in the collections of the Museum of Modern Art and the Whitney Museum of American Art.Throughout 2012 Whiteonwhite: algorithmicnoir was exhibited at the Sundance Film Festival, Berlinale, and Site Santa Fe.
