Subject: Verification of a Yes Men "no"

It has been confirmed again, today (Sept. 19, 2007), by Andy Bichlbaum of the Yes Men: They are NOT doing a show with The Warehouse Gallery or Syracuse University because of Jeffrey Hoone's decision to terminate my position as Director of The Warehouse Gallery at Syracuse University.

Syracuse has lost one its greatest assets. Astria Suparak, Inaugural Director of The Warehouse Gallery of Syracuse University, was removed from her position as of Sept. 30th, 2007, despite widespread support from community members, students, faculty, and the international art community. This decision was made unilaterally by Jeffrey Hoone, Executive Director of the Coalition of Museum and Art Centers (CMAC).

At the time of Suparak's dismissal, Hoone also canceled her forthcoming exhibitions, including "Keep It Slick: Infiltrating Capitalism with The Yes Men," due to open in November 2007.
