The Politics of Cool

by Cooper Battersby and Emily Vey Duke

C Magazine, Winter 2007, no. 96, p. 7

Battersby and Vey Duke discuss the controversial curatorial practice of Astria Suparak, who was fired from her position at the Warehouse Gallery in Syracuse. According to the authors, Suparak's deployment of "the aesthetics of cool" has worked to both reinforce and undermine her work.The last three exhibitions that Suparak mounted at The Warehouse Gallery, Embracing Winter, Networked Nature, and Come On: Desire Under the Female Gaze are highlighted.
