Bio

Astria Suparak, a curator known for her efforts to highlight emerging and international artists, was appointed director of Carnegie Mellon University’s Miller Gallery, effective March 1, 2008. Suparak’s cutting-edge exhibitions often employ a variety of media, from painting and photography, to craft and electronic arts.

Suparak, who succeeds interim director Petra Fallaux, comes to Carnegie Mellon from Syracuse University’s Warehouse Gallery, a public, non-profit art gallery. She has also curated exhibitions independently in Montreal and New York.

Suparak curated the Warehouse Gallery’s incisive in late 2007. She described the exhibition as “unabashed explorations and unapologetic articulations of female libido” and an attempt to break down the notion of dichotomous gender. Thousands of people visited this exhibition, which received international press attention.
