Members of Collaborative Projects, Inc. (COLAB) collaboratively made live and prerecorded television for public access cable TV between 1978 and 1985. The works were broadcast as from Jim Chladek’s ETC Studios on 23rd Street which later became Manhattan Neighborhood Network. The shows were All Color News, Potato Wolf, and Red Curtain. Many of the taped shows were later gathered for distribution by Alan W. Moore, Sophie Vieille, and Michael Carter to distribute through COLAB's  Monday/Wednesday/Friday Video Club during 1986-2000. Andrea Callard and Coleen Fitzgibbon began to preserve these materials in 2006 in collaboration with Moore.   http://235bowery.s3.amazonaws.com/exhibitionlinks/91/XFRSTN_Artists%27Texts_pdf.pdf

On the occassion of XFRSTN(Transfer Station) at the New Museum during the summer of 2013, Callard and Fitzgibbon first presented a selection of excerpts from COLAB TV. A DVD of longer segments of this material is available at

"MODELS":    Joe Babas    Andrea Callard    Jonah Susskind    Dorian Mckaie    Jared Madere

Joe Babas (1945 - 2007) was an artist and inventor whose body of work was auctioned off for charity at 65 Saint Felix Street the year after his suicide. Babas' body was part prototype (memorabilia design for corporate entities, architectural proposals) and part variation (art). Like all bodies, Babas' was held together by the communication between its parts, like a mammal. 

For "MODELS" Babas is joined by Dorian Mckaie, Jared Madere, Andrea Callard, and Jonah Susskind, with works that engage, combine, and disrupt the material reality and abstract potential of the model. References, processes, and postures are at once obvious and obscure, as each work simultaneously presents and provokes the modes of production, distribution, and identification it models. 


MORE TO COME: Friday, October 4

5 September 7PM at the New Museum XFR STN in NYC

On the occasion of XFR STN (Transfer Station) at the New Museum, Coleen Fitzgibbon and I will present clips from COLAB TV highlighting the contributions of women.

Beginning in 1978, COLAB produced the All Color News, followed by Potato Wolf and Red Curtain. Many of those videotapes still exist, stored as the M/F/W Club materials or by individual artists. Coleen Fitzgibbon and I began digitizing COLAB TV shows in 2006 in collaboration with Alan W. Moore.

Please join us in the NM theater space at 7PM. The museum is free beginning at 7PM on Thursday nights. There are XFR STN events every Thursday at 7PM in the 5th floor gallery space.
XFR STN
(Transfer Station) is an open-door artist-centered media archiving project on the 5th floor of the New Museum in New York City
Make a free appointment online and bring obsolete media to digitize, take away, and archive online. Visit the museum for artist gallery talks every Thursday night at 7PM when the museum is free. There is a paper broadside to read and a resource room with information about the history of Collaborative Projects, Inc. (COLAB) and the M/W/F Club.

Coleen Fitzgibbon and I have been digitizing COLAB TV since 2006. On September 5th at 7PM, we will share clips from our efforts, focusing especially on the contributions of women. Please join us.
