Carolee Schneemann

To All Concerned:

This is my note in support of the remarkable film and exhibit
programs organized by Astria Suparak at the Warehouse Gallery. It is
rare to find someone as dedicated, insightful, inspiring and
knowledgeable as she is in her field. It would be to the community's
benefit to reinstate and to support her creative contribution.

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.
