The New York Times: CCA Faculty Astria Suparak Contributes to Miranda July's Latest Project

The New York Times

“I was not as film-savvy as many of the women I met through the project. I began to learn about experimental film and video artists from these women, and I wanted to share this work with the Joanie 4 Jackie audience.

I invited young curators to put together compilations that I called ‘Co-Star Tapes.’ Rita Gonzales (now at LACMA) and Astria Suparak (an independent curator and professor in the Curatorial Practice program at California College of the Arts) each created tapes that included rigorous work by artists like SEMEFO (with Teresa Margolles), Ximena Cuevas and Peggy Ahwesh.

I paid for the production of these tapes with an award from the Andrea Frank Foundation, which was established by photographer and filmmaker Robert Frank in honor of his late daughter.”
