The EYE Filmmuseum will star a visually overwhelming multi-channel video installation by Dutch-Brazilian artist Rafaël Rozendaal during the ‘An Evening at EYE’ event that takes place Friday 24 November, 21.00-24.00 hours.
“An Evening at Eye” will be a festive evening in EYE’s public arena, with a starring role for a visually overwhelming multi-channel video installation by Dutch-Brazilian artist Rafaël Rozendaal (1980). The artwork will be accompanied by live DJs and interactive installations, under the auspices of EYE’s young art community, EXPOSED.
Rafaël Rozendaal is a Dutch-Brazilian artist who has risen to international fame in recent years lives in New York, where he creates internet art, tapestries and installations. Rozendaal draws over 50 million visitors a year with his projects for the internet, which the artist refers to as his ‘digital canvas’. The designs for his websites, installations and prints are driven by transformation: from movement towards abstraction, from virtual to physical space and from website to print. His artistic expressions, however, all share a common feature: they emerged out of a fascination for the moving image and interactivity in its most basic form.
Rozendaal’s work was featured at Centre Pompidou, the Venice Biennale, the Stedelijk Museum and on Times Square, New York. Valiz recently published a book on Rozendaal, with reproductions, prints, as well as essays by art historian Margriet Schavemaker, curator Kodama Kanazawa and others.Publication date: 15 Nov '17
